Church Closes Its Doors

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A METHODIST church closed its doors for the last time on Sunday after more than 90 years.

Grimethorpe Methodist Church's secretary, Des Haynes, 81, said nobody is able to take on the responsibility of running it and with no new blood coming in, it's being sold.

"It's not money, it's not the amount of people, it's just we cant get anybody to take over the responsibility of secretary and you can't have a church without a secretary.

"It's up for sale, but there's a possibility in order to get rid of it more quickly that it might go to auction."

Des said during its peak the congregation had about 30 members but now has only 11.
