Have your say

A Rotherham church is to celebrate its 80th anniversary with a special service and fun day.

Bethesda Church on Mansfield Road, Swallownest, will have an anniversary service from 10.30am on Sunday, following by a community fun day at 1pm.

Pastor Iain Somerville said: “We wanted to mark this milestone occasion and decided to make it a celebration which the community could join in with.

“We know there are some in the area who, although no longer part of us, may have memories of past involvement and we would love to have them come along and share those memories.

We have members who are the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of some of the founding families which is wonderful.”
