A church in Stratford is holding a family day to celebrate its 122nd birthday.
St Matthew’s in Dyson Road was opened in 1891 by Canon Richard Pelly, to serve the area between West Ham Park and Romford.
On September 22, it’ll be holding a community day to celebrate its birthday and the long-standing connection with the community.
Reverend Christiana Asinugo said: “St Matthew’s is a church at the heart of the community. This event will be an opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate our diversity, share, learn from each other and get to know ourselves better.”
The day will include a salsa dancing session, book giveaway and henna stall, while refreshments will be provided with a BBQ. There’ll be badge-making and face-painting for the children, and there will also be health awareness stalls and blood pressure checking.
Entry is free and the day will run at St Matthew’s Church in Dyson Road, from 11am until 4pm.
