THE first of what is hoped will be many new community events was held at St Nathanael’s Church on September 15 as the Opening Doors Project and church made use of its new £20,000 kitchen.

In collaboration with St Nathanael’s and paid for by National Lottery’s Local Connections Fund, Opening Doors provided an Afternoon Tea and Bingo for local residents.

More than 50 guests enjoyed a slap-up selection of sandwiches, cakes and homemade scones with cream and strawberries before being entertained with a few rounds of prize bingo.

The new kitchen is a major milestone in the church’s ambitious journey to become a “church in the community for the community”.
