To Celebrate 200 years of Methodism in Outlane the Church Council have invited previous Ministers to return to take a service and on Sunday 4th December Rev Rob Hilton will be returning to lead the service. Rob was Minister at Outlane and Lindley for many years so the church members would like to invite anyone from your church who remembers Rob to join Outlane at their service of celebration. A faith lunch will follow the service which all the congregation are welcome to join with.
