Fi­nal ser­vice at church

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

A HUGE turnout is ex­pected for the fi­nal ser­vice at South Willes­bor­ough Methodist Church in Cud­worth Road on Sun­day.

Opened in 1888, it used to boast the largest Sun­day school in Kent with 200 chil­dren, but over the years the con­gre­ga­tion has dwin­dled un­til now only a hand­ful of worshippers at­tend reg­u­larly.

The ser­vice at 3pm will be led by Supt Min­is­ter the Rev Richard Gro­cott and one per­son hop­ing to be present is church stew­ard Elsie Wood, 84, who has been at­tend­ing ser­vices at the church for 78 years.

A re­port on the fi­nal ser­vice will be in next week’s edi­tion.
