Silver Anniversary of Lalgadh Church

November 1993 was the start of a new born church on the outskirts of Lalgadh Hospital. The church has grown many fold since that time and this week we celebrate with much joy,  its silver jubilee, 25 years.

Silver Jubilee Lalgadh Church November2018

Many people visited Lalgadh Hospital this week for the celebrations, reminiscing, music, dance and of course good Nepali food and prayer. Lots of people were thanked for their spiritual and physical support and encouragement.  Norman Meeten, whose had been a wonder influence from the beginning spoke about ‘a church is not a building…it is inside each of us individually … we are the church’  and collectively as community we are the church.
