St Andrew’s Church, Chingford Lane, Woodford Green celebrated with fish and chips as its anniversary, which fell on Saturday, is also St Andrew’s Day.

Saint Andrew was a Christian Apostle and the brother of Saint Peter.

Reverend Annie McTighe said: “It’s a real church in the community. The people have a heart to see Woodford loved by God. It’s a real privilege to work with such good, lovely and kind people who like to have a bit of fun.”

The church was originally built for servants while their masters would go to All Saints’, Inmans Row, Woodford Green.
