Minehead in Somerset has seen a new hall built in just three weeks. The building is a new 165 seater Kingdom Hall for the local Jehovah’s Witness congregation, and has been built entirely by volunteers seeing around 200 fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses from across the region travelling to help.
What is more amazing is that the build has happened in just three weeks and most of that has been done at weekends. The congregation has been saving for the last 15 years to enable them to build the new hall and had raised over £300,000 but it has all been worthwhile and they have been pleased with the support they have received.
Allan Peppin, one of the local Jehovah’s Witnesses involved, said “We’ve all had such a happy time working together and we have been really encouraged by the positive observations and messages of support from passers-by and visitors to the site.”
