HONITON: Church on the move
Thursday, 27 March 2014
Honiton’s Community Church is to move to larger premises after outgrowing the hall where they have met for the last decade.
The church will benefit from the up-to-date facilities at Honiton’s new Beehive community centre, and members will be meeting there from next month.
Norman Amey, one of the church’s leadership team, said: “We would like to thank the Honiton Community College principal, Glenn Smith, and his staff at the college for the excellent way in which they have looked after us over the years.
“But we have outgrown the accommodation at the college and have been looking for larger premises in the town for several years.”
Members of the church meet on Sunday mornings and have used several different locations in the town in recent years.
Mr Amey added: “The Beehive has come at just the right time for us and we are delighted to have the extra space, so that we have room for everyone who wants to join in with what the church is doing.”
The Community Church has offices at The King’s Centre and has developed a network of projects and activities in the community, the most well known of which is The King’s Centre Food Bank.
But they also run a furniture bank, debt advice service and offer other forms of support for those who find themselves in difficult circumstances.
Many parents also attend the ‘Mother and Toddler’ mornings and a large number of other people are catered for across various groups.
The Beehive was officially opened earlier this month and will provide modern facilities for a number of community groups in Honiton and the surrounding area.
