St Albans church community centre reopens

A CHURCH community centre which was destroyed in an arson attack three years ago will reopen this Saturday.

Members of Christ Church in High Oaks raised over �700,000 to replace the wooden building, known as the St Andrews community building, which was destroyed in the fire (pictured).

The total cost of the project was �1.1 million and it is hoped that this new building will enable the church to serve their local community more effectively. It includes a main hall, a small meeting room and modern kitchen and toilets. This Saturday the building will be open to the public from 12noon to 4pm and a thanksgiving service will also be held at 3pm on Sunday.
