Wainsgate Remembered Project


If you have stories to share about times you’ve spent at Wainsgate over the years – maybe you attended services or events here, or went to Sunday School or got married here – we would love to hear from you. At our Heritage Open Day, we will be talking to people and recording their stories – taking photo’s too. We’d like to celebrate the the building through the stories of the people who remember it, so please do come and share your tales with us, and if you have photo’s we’d also love to see those.
