St Paul's Church in Goodmayes are flinging their doors open to the community.


A Goodmayes church is flinging open its doors to the public next month and is also inviting churchgoers to cycle or walk to raise funds for charity.

St Paul’s Church, in Barley Lane, is hosting a joint open day and “Ride and Stride” on Saturday, September 8.

The church’s magazine editor Wendy Hill said: “We’re going to have some stalls where people can buy home-made crafts and you can also look at the wonderful stained glass windows we have.

“Or, if you just want to come and pray you can do that as well.”

The Ride and Stride is an event where churchgoers are sponsored to tour around churches on bike or foot and raise money in support of charity Friends of Essex Churches.

Wendy added: “Churches that need a repair and need help paying for it can apply to [Friends of Essex Churches].”
