Heritage Team and Volunteers at Mount Zion Methodist Heritage Chapel
A warm welcome from our Minister: Rev'd Kathie Heathcoat,
I am passionate about equality for every member of society, and support Fair Trade wherever I can. I enjoy leading worship, particularly using images, poetry and music to bring people closer to God; going out into the community to meet people; engaging in schools work; sharing in Bible Study; and encouraging all people to explore the spiritual side of being human.
Church & Property Steward: Matthew Townsend
A burial ground dating back to the Bronze Age looking after the grounds and buildings in this wonderful location is an absolute privilege. We are but custodians for a short period in time. In the words of Charles Wesley himself once etched onto a window of the cottage "Time how short...eternity how long."
Social Media & Comms: Sam Townsend
Mount Zion is set in an idylic landscape. It is a privellage to help share the word of this beautiful building and the important role the chapel played founding Methodism.
Volunteer: Liz Wright
Clearing and tidying the graves of total strangers long since passed away might seem odd to some, but it provides me with a sense of achievement and reveals to visitors the memorials long hidden by moss, heather and weeds. Gardening in the graveyard gives me a sense of calm and tranquillity that is difficult to find elsewhere. As echoed on many gravestones...'Peace, perfect peace'.
A huge thank you to all of our volunteers and friends at Illingworth Moor Methodist Church
