Sunday 30th May 2010: an important day in the history of Goldthorpe Pentecostal Church, as this was the last meeting at Beever Street.
The church first met there in June 1964, with an extension to the building being added in 1997. Now, as the church has grown, the building on Beever Street just isn’t big enough, hence the move to the new church building.
But for tonight, we remembered God’s faithfulness over so many years and rejoiced in all He has done. Mark preached from Ecclesiastes 3 and we acknowledged that the time has come to move on.
At the end of the service, we took a photo of the church members – the last official photo we will take at Beever Street. Not all the members could be present, but for those who were, it was a night to remember.
And in the words of the song,
‘Greater things have yet to come/ And greater things are still to be done here.’ (God of This City, Bluetree).
