Newmount’s 80th Anniversary
In September 2019, Newmount Methodist Church celebrated its 80th Anniversary. There were two weekends of special services combined with a weeklong exhibition of Stories from the Knitted Bible. For the Anniversary Sunday we were delighted to welcome Rev David King to lead our services. David is the son of Rev Kenneth King who had been our Minister during the period 1964-69, and David and his wife Margaret and their children were part of our church family until the early 1990’s when David became a Minster himself and they moved to the North West. After the morning service our invited guests were able to catch up on old times as we served a sit down lunch for ninety! During the rest of the week the exhibition of thirty one stories from across the Old and New Testaments and church archives were open every afternoon and evening and it was good to see a steady trickle of visitors from far and near, including some from northern Scotland.
Our celebrations continued the following weekend with a family activity afternoon and the dedication of a new pulpit fall given in memory of Mary Loydall. The design, for Harvest, was mostly hand sewn by one of Mary’s daughters, Ann Malkin. We concluded the anniversary celebrations in style with a rousing Sing Sankey! evening which, as always, brought friends from across the Circuit to join us. Our anniversary prayer is printed below.
We give thanks for the vision and commitment of all the members and friends at Newmount who have gone before us. We pray now, that the same Lord whom they served, will continue working in us by the power and presence of His Holy Spirit, to grant us grace and love such that this church will be sustained as a place of worship and fellowship, a centre of teaching the biblical truths and a place of mission to our community.
