Cornerstone Church- a new name in a familiar place
York Circuit Webteam: 6th April 2017 2:47pm
Cornerstone Church is the new name for the building that was formerly St George's Methodist Church in Tang Hall, and for a new worshiping community that is taking shape here.
A team of people drawn from around the circuit have come together with a vision to plant a new worshiping community into the area, and for the building to be used in outreach to and support of the local community, both by the new church and others already working in the local area, particularly York Community Church.
In December 2016 many of the former members of St George's Methodist Church decided to move on and held their last service. Many are now worshiping with the congregation at Heworth.
A new church council was appointed in January 2017 and together with others from around the circuit are working out what this new church will look like. We are also exploring the possibility of future student involvement in the project.
The new team are meeting to pray and worship together, and more news on activities will be coming soon. You are very welcome to join us- please see our Facebook page or contact the Circuit Office (see the Contact us page) for more details.
