The final service in Lydney Methodist Church
Lydney congregation

After nearly 150 years of weekly worship and activity, the people of Lydney Methodist Church relocated to the Community Room at The Springs and Watermead Centre, South Road, Lydney.

The current Lydney Methodist Chapel was built in 1869 at a cost of just £110. Now, due to rising bills and increasing maintenance issues, the final service in the methodist chapel was held on Sunday 1 July.

Methodist Minister Revd Michelle Ireland said "although the relocating of Lydney Methodist congregation is tinged with sadness, as the much loved and well used Chapel closes, there is also a great sense of anticipation and excitement as together we pursue this new opportunity of serving the Lydney community".

A lot of people have drawn on the Old Testament accounts of the experience of Israel in exile in trying to make sense of what has been happening over the past few months as we have been unable to use our buildings. There is a danger in...
