Old and New in Calderdale

I was invite to visit Calderdale Circuit, to see two unique and exciting mission projects.
First to Mount Zion Methodist Church. Founded in 1865, it has a magnificent interior and the largest collection of Wesley memorabilia I have ever seen! I really liked the smiling John Wesley! he usually looks so severe! Joined by some members of the circuit, we shared a time of quiet reflection and prayer together in this historic place. Mount Zion welcome local schools for a heritage experience.

Then to the new! The Busoasis, which is a mobile outreach resource for the circuit, offering IT training, children's activities, prayer stations and much more. Being mobile, it can go to new places and reach people for whom traditional church would be unfamiliar and perhaps intimidating.
