The Church in Rodley will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with a brass band concert set to perform to mark the occasion. 

The event takes place at Church Hall, Wesley Street, Rodley on Saturday 13 May, with the Clifton & Lightcliffe brass band taking the stage at 7.30pm.

The church itself alternates between Methodist and Anglican services, as well as being used for a range of services such as Slimming World, Keep Fit, Ladies Group Meeting, and Local Councillor’s surgery, among others.

Paul Heaton, Chairman of Rodley Village Community Group said: “It’s a hub in the village, the only place with a hall and used often through the week, the problem we have is getting volunteers involved.

“Volunteers are always welcome at the Rodley Village Community Group; we’re getting old and it’s getting harder.

“The church is there and its there to support people, it’s used most nights. It’s a matter of getting people involved.” 

Calling for volunteers, Mr Heaton said: “Just come along and get involved to put things on for the people of Rodley because there’s not a lot on in Rodley.”

The event is priced at £6 and can be purchased by emailing paulbheaton2@gmail.com or direct messaging Christine Heaton on Facebook. Any remaining tickets can be bought on the door.
