Many things happen to buildings, communities, families and Churches over a span of 200 years. So to celebrate Dodworth's bicentenary we planned a weekend where lots of different events would take place. On Thursday we held a formal service led by our Superintendent which The Barnsley Mayor, local councillors, circuit reps., members old and new and the community attended. On Saturday the Chapel was open to view the flower arrangements and displays of memorabilia. On Saturday evening a truly varied evening of entertainment was performed; and to conclude the weekend we had a Songs of Praise Service of Thanksgiving with a scrumptious Chapel tea....Follow that!
