Outdoor Service

This morning, the Easter celebrations continue at North Cheam with an outdoor church service at Lavender Corner starting at 10:45am.  Lavender Corner is the corner of the North Cheam crossroads where  Steve's Card shop, The Mexican restaurant, and Santander are. If you look up at the art deco you can actually see 'Lavender Corner' written into the building at the top - but I digress...

The North Cheam Baptist Church have traditionally had an outdoor service on Good Friday but it used to be in the car park at the Elmcroft Centre (next to Sainsbury's in North Cheam). However no one ever noticed them there and last year it was already books so they moved to Lavender Corner. It went so well they decided to stay.

As well as a Good Friday church service there is free tea, coffee and hot cross buns. There are also some tables with seating so people can just sit and relax. They have a band too. There are a few churches involved so they should have at least 50 people along.

It's nice to see them breaking with the traditional Easter worship of a rabbit. Why not pop along and join in? It starts in 10 minutes though (sorry for the short notice).
