The Royal Town’s MP was treated to a tour of the newly refurbished Four Oaks Methodist Church followed by tea with the Church Leaders in Four Oaks.
Four Oaks Methodist Church - a Grade 2 listed building in a conservation area - undertook a £1.7 million extension and a huge modernisation programme of its ancillary buildings. The achievement was partly thanks to the hard work of its trustees and volunteers, who managed to raise a significant amount of the funds required in just 18 months.
Among some of the improvements include a brand new reception area as well as widening corridors and the installation of a ramp to be more user-friendly to wheelchair users.
The church serves around 150 people every Sunday with an official 200-strong Membership of Congregation – all of whom will benefit from the renovation.
Following the visit, Andrew said:
“Congratulations to the church on its superb refurbishment. The Four Oaks Methodist Church plays a vital role in the local community of Four Oaks, providing not only a place of worship but also a space for local groups and organisations to forge new friendships and share their stories.
“It is testament to the service they offer to the community that the Church was able to raise the funds for this project and carry out what is a most impressive update.”
