St John’s Church in Aldercar is raising £250,000 to build a new church hall.

The church recently become a parish church in its own right in order to get the hall built for its expanding congregation.

Vicar Karen Padley: “For us to build more space we needed to be responsible for our own finance instead of operating under St Andrews.”

An open weekend will raise money September 22 .
