NEWBERRY COUNTY — After a seven-year wait, Trinity AME Church has opened a new sanctuary to be built on the site where the old building once stood.

According to the church, the old structure was badly damaged by a storm and after years of planning, an official groundbreaking ceremony was held last Sunday.

“Seven years ago we lost our sanctuary in an ice storm and since then our members have prayed and worked tirelessly to acquire a new sanctuary. The Lord has blessed and has now permitted us to erect a new house of worship where the old one was,” Reverend Bobby Seepersaud said in a letter announcing the groundbreaking. “We are thrilled that God has once again kept his promise that says, ‘Whatever you ask, believing, you shall receive.'”

The church will be located at 1338 Green Tree Road in Newberry, near the county’s Silverstreet neighborhood.
