Methodist Vision Day


Hethersett Methodist Church will be remembering the past and looking to the future at a special Operation New Look Vision Day this Saturday. 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Operation New Look which transformed the previous antiquated chapel into today’s modern church. 

Over the next 18 months the church will be celebrating the past and preparing for the challenges of the future. 

“Saturday will be a day when we spend time looking back at where we have come from and appreciating the people and the events that have shaped the Church into what it is today. We will also spend time looking at where we might move next as we move on,” said the Methodist Minister The Rev Derek Grimshaw. 

A memory book will be available for people to write down their reminiscences and stories, anecdotes and memories of people that have been involved with the church over the past 25 years. There will also be a Vision Book for people to write down their ideas for the future. 

“There are many challenges facing the church in the coming years including new housing that will see Hethersett grow, changing the negative perceptions that younger people have of the Church and the problems of ageing congregations. We can either shut ourselves away and pretend it isn’t happening or we can do as this church did 25 years ago and reshape the way we do things so that we can meet the challenges of the coming years,” Rev Grimshaw added. 

The Vision Day runs from 10 a.m until 2 p.m with coffee available from 10 a.m and light lunches from midday.
