Charity Bike Ride in aid of Newchurch Methodist Church Structural Issues

Roy Suthers and Richie Watts (members of Newchurch Methodist Church) are cycling the Liverpool Leeds Canal on the 16th and 17th August (127.25 miles). They are doing this to help raise the funds required to deal with the serious structural issues around the old building.

Areas of the church are out of use until the serious repairs can be made. The church also has drainage issues that require new footpaths and drainage channels at the front of the building.

The church is at the heart of the community and needs to make the improvements to continue their excellent work in the community. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
