St. Alban's Church Is Coming Back To Life
Re-dedication service by the Bishop of London on Sunday
St Alban's Acton Green Common is coming back to life at 10:30am this Sunday, October 2nd 2016, at a service led by the Bishop of London, Rt Revd & Rt Hon Dr Richard Chartres. All are welcome.
Dr Chartres preached at the Royal Wedding (Kate and Will) and is an entertaining and inspirational speaker. The re-dedication service will have an element of drama as he bangs on the door of the church to gain entry.
St Alban's now has a working heating system, roof, insulation, solar panels, and toilet facilities, the first phase in a scheme to bring St Alban's back to life in what the clergy, Mike Tufnell and Richard Moy hope will be the 'beating heart of the community.'
Mike says: "The community helped save this building when even the central church was trying to sell it off, we hope the community will come out in force to celebrate this rededication and see what impact the largest space of its kind in the area can have on the Acton Green and surrounding areas.'
Vicar Richard Moy adds, 'As Christ Church Turnham Green got full up throughout the week we sensed God needed more space in Chiswick and it's very exciting to see how that vision is now being fulfilled, with the re-dedication of St Alban's.'
Drinks and celebratory cakes will be served after the service and the congregation are aiming to raise £50,000 for three very worthy overseas building projects as a 'thanksgiving' collection for all the works already completed here on Acton Green Common.
