PEMBROKE’S Tabernacle United Reform Church is once again opening its doors after being closed for just over two years.

The magnificent Main Street Grade II building was built in 1867 and its spire can be seen from various points around Pembroke.

The building had however grown tired over the years and was in need of care and attention.

In the care of architects Morgan and Horowskyj, the fine church has been brought back to life with careful renovation and the addition of an extension at the rear.

New glass doors now enable all to see within and following the first service, led by Rev Nanette Lewis-Head, on November 26 at 11am, an open day welcomes everyone on Saturday December 2, 10am-4pm.

There will be an opportunity to see the new meeting room , extension and other facilities, including the Tabernacle Kindergarten and stop for a cup of tea and light refreshment at no charge.

This is a multi-purpose building for the use of the community throughout the week days and evenings, alongside the workshop aspect.

Further to the open day, Our Open Doors, will be a celebration in music and words on Sunday December 3 at 3pm.

This has been a mammoth undertaking for a small dedicated group of faithful people who now wish to invite everyone to join them to celebrate the return to the church.

During the church renovations Sunday services were held at Foundry House 21C.

Anyone interested in using any of the rooms and facilities is welcome to come along on the open day or contact the church secretary Kathryn Harries on 01646 684704.
