In 1796 a small group of independently-minded Christians began to meet in homes and in the open air around the Market Cross in Northallerton. The seed grew and flourished until a permanent building project was called for. A large church (and eventually associated minister’s dwelling) was established down a short driveway halfway along the High Street. It is now a grade 2 listed building, known as Zion URC.
2019 marks the 200th anniversary of its dedication. A special open weekend is planned for June 8/9. Saturday 10 till 4, Sunday, after the service at 10, from 11 till 3, with light refreshments. On the first day a new outside mural will be unveiled and blessed at 10.30. Throughout, an exhibition of historic information and pictures will be displayed in the church hall, and full access will be available to the award-winning Secret Garden alongside.
A new church history booklet is planned for the end of the year, for which extra information is still sought if you know of any!
Meanwhile you are warmly welcome in June.
