Moving On at Kenley and Purley Methodist Church

"After much exploration and prayer, at the Church Council held on 25 February 2012 the Church resolved that it would cease to function as a local church after 25 November 2012. Moving On was the theme for the last service held at Kenley and Purley Methodist Church on Sunday, 25 November 2012. It was wonderful to see the church packed, and to hear the memories of over 100 years of witness and service in that place."
Had a friend at work who said her mum and dad went to this methodist church but that they were an ageing shrinking congregation. All part of change as people find new ways to express their faith and love and wonder I guess.

Now I read ...  "For Sale Freehold Price £700,000.00 (Offers in excess of.)
Substantial church property with adjacent hall and various meeting rooms and ancillary areas. redevelopment potential subject to planning consent. site area 0.34 acres ( 0.137 hectares) approx.
Not just loosing a church but also a community space.
