Celebrations have taken place at Pocklington Christian Fellowship Church after the completion of renovation work costing more than £250,000.

Last Saturday, the congregation and visitors gathered outside for the official re-opening of the building to hear Pastor Alan Spademan explain that it was bought by Assemblies of God Pentecostal Church in 1970, now known as Pocklington Christian Fellowship.

Although there had been a desire to modernise the building for more than 40 years, it was only in recent times that it became a real possibility. A building team of volunteers was formed and the vision began to take shape. Alan thanked God for the individuals, families, charities and grant bodies that contributed to the building modernisation project.
