A CHURCH has celebrated a landmark anniversary.

Green Moor Church, Wortley, Sheffield, toasted 200 years since the Parish of Hunshelf’s first chapel was built with a celebration. Before that time, Methodism had taken place in a mill warehouse and cottages in Green Moor.

The church has seen a number of changes over the years and a plaque from 1812 can still be seen in the original building, which is now used as a residential centre for the Boys’ Brigade,

A special service was held to mark the occasion, with a display of photography and local scrapbooks.

Doris Stubbs, for the church, said: “Once again it’s the only place of worship in the parish as Snowden Hill Mission, founded in Chapel Farm, has now returned to its former use as part of the farmhouse.”
