Request for Comments
The following has been received from the Gospel Standard Trust. We have been asked to make this widely available to the public. Please note that the Trustees are inviting comments from interested parties. See the full note by downloading the link at the bottom of this notice.
“Owing to the dwindling congregation the above chapel was closed for public worship following the last service on Tuesday 4 September 2012. The Trustees have now sold this chapel. The Trustees will still have the responsibility for the upkeep of the Burial Ground situated in Kiln Road on the opposite side of the road to the chapel.
The Trustees are considering an application to the Charity Commission for a Scheme whereby part of the proceeds of sale can be set aside to provide a Permanent Endowment, the income from which can be used for the maintenance of the Burial Ground. This will be subject to the formal agreement of the beneficiary, the Gospel Standard Aid and Poor Relief Society (Registered Charity No 209373).”
The full notice can be downloaded from here: Zion Chapel, Kiln Road. The Trustees will next meet on the 30th of September.
The Chapel has been sold for use by a local undertaker as a Chapel of Rest.
