Worship Leader:Inside the Worship Area

There are activities for all ages at North Walsham Methodist Church.
 We think of ourselves as a family and want people to feel welcomed, loved & supported in the fellowship of this Church.

 That is something we cannot really convey in a website.  It can only be experienced.
 We say the same about the love of Jesus.
 It is not enough just to read about it, it is something to be experienced. So we invite you to join us in worship and in any of the activities of this Church and to share in the welcome and love we have found in Jesus

The congregation welcomes Rev David Philo who is back with us following his Sabbatical

Thanks to David Ling for this photograph of the inside of our church taken during 1930

Inside NW Methodist dated 1930

Note: there is no pipe organ, that was installed in 1938, but music was led by a small harmonium seen in front of the pews. No sound system either.

David has done some investigation and the church has been decorated for a HARVEST FESTIVAL SERVICE - He has even discovered the hymns that were sung during the Service: from The Primitive Methodist Hymnal they were:
  Come ye thankful people come,
  We plough the fields and scatter
  Praise to God. immortal praise, for the love that crowns our days.
  Sow in the morn thy seed, at even hold out thine hand
last verse reads
Then when the glorious end,
The day of God is come,
the angel-reapers shall descend,
And Heaven cry "Harvest Home"

The gentleman standing in the pulpit, waiting for a congregation, is thought to be the Revd. William Hemp, who was minister here from 1928 to 1934.
Hopefully he did not suffer from hay fever surrounded by all that floristry !

Above him on the wall, where we now have a cross and digital projection, you can see the large scroll. It contains the text "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise..."  Psalm 100 verse 4.

Contrast that with today's interior taken from the same spot:-

And so what changes will be made in another 86 years - the year 2102 ?
