The Horncastle Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses has said thanks to the community for their support during the building of a new Kingdom Hall on Boston Road.

The new hall was much needed as the previous premises had been outgrown by an expanding congregation.

Work on the new hall - which has a bigger capacity - started in September.

It was built by volunteer Jehovah’s Witnesses from all over the country and funded by voluntary contributions. The organisation never asks for grants or funding from secular sources.

Horncastle co-ordinator Andrew Dunlop said: “Our previous Kingdom Hall in the town was good for us for many years and was quite large, but we were virtually at the stage of standing room only at all of our weekly meetings.

“Hopefully our new, larger capacity hall will make for more comfort for at least the foreseeable future.

“The response from the people of Horncastle and district has been marvellous. We have had many interested visitors to the site and as we have gone about our ministry in the area so many people have asked how we are getting along.”

Mr Dunlop revealed there will be an Open Day at the new Kingdom Hall on January 10. He said visitors were welcome to attend weekly Sunday morning or Thursday evening meetings.

He added: “We do want 
to say a very big and personal thank you to all the 
local population for their support.”
