Last Meeting At Maldon Friary for COC Heybridge
Sunday 29th August marks last meeting at the Friary for local church.
- (1888PressRelease) August 28, 2010 - After eight years, Christian Outreach Centre Heybridge and Maldon will be leaving their Sunday morning base at the Friary and returning to their church building in Heybridge. A generous gift of land has allowed COC Heybridge to expand their parking at the building on Broad Street Green and the decision has therefore been taken to move all services back to the building.
Said Pastor Ted Mint, "The Friary has served us well as a meeting venue for the past eight years but we feel the time has come to return to our building in Heybridge. The recent gift of land has allowed us to secure the Heybridge property making it safer for all the members of our church as well as providing scope to increase the buildings and services we offer to our local community. We are somewhat sad to be leaving Maldon town centre but we are equally excited by the opportunities our new land offer our church and our community."
Maldon Friary is owned and maintained by Essex County Council as an Adult Community College. Christian Outreach Centre Heybridge have been using the hall at the Friary for Sunday meetings since 2002.
The final meeting at the Friary takes place this Sunday, 29th August 2010, at 10.30am. The first meeting back at the church building in Heybridge will take place on Sunday 5th September at 10.30am. As with all COC services, anyone is welcome to come along.
Christian Outreach Centre, located on Broad Street Green in Heybridge, has been a place of Christian worship for over 100 years. COC Heybridge is part of the global Christian Outreach Centre movement of over 3000 churches with the shared vision of one people meeting in many places.
