The Pocklington Christian Fellowship held its first service back in the newly renovated building on Chapmangate 
 earlier this month.

The all-age evangelical church based in the town centre was given a huge revamp thanks to the help of Pocklington Town Council and WREN, who donated £50,000 to the project.

An official opening has now been arranged so the residents of Pocklington and district can take a look around the place of worship.

The grand opening will take place on 29 November at 11am.

Pastor Alan Spademan said: “We held our first service back in the building and it was an encouraging service with old and new friends in attendance.

“Everyone who has seen it have been very impressed with the changes.

“From outside the only change is the colour – inside everything is new!

“We have invited many people including the charities and bodies who have given grants toward the project; these include Pocklington Town Council and WREN, who donated a huge amount of money towards the build.

“We are also grateful for the goodness of God and the faithful and sacrificial giving of finance, expertise and time, which many individuals contributed to make our vision a reality.

“We anticipate a lot of people visiting on the day, but we would be delighted to have anyone come and view the building during the Open House time (11.30am-2.45pm). There will be guided tours of the building and a rolling slideshow of how the changes have been accomplished during its year long transformation. Refreshments will also be available.”
