A Seventh-day Adventist church in Redbridge has been approached by its Hampstead counterpart offering to help raise funds for several new projects.

The Ilford Central Seventh-day Adventist Church only moved into its new Coventry Road home last November.

However, those connected with the church are now keen to set about funding improvements, such as disabled access.

The Hampstead Seventh-day Adventist Church in Haverstock Hill, recently offered its services on hearing about Ilford Central’s wish to improve its new home.

Serena Francis, of Romford, and a church member said: “Hampstead Seventh-day wanted to come to our church and host an evening of music to help us.

The free concert on Saturday April 19 will feature two choirs, tenor soloist Bobby Carr, soprano soloist Jennifer Phillips, and the Hampstead Adventist Church’s Millennium Orchestra.

The Easter Concert on Saturday April 19 starts 6.45pm at Ilford Central Seventh-day Adventist Church, 14-16 Coventry Road, Ilford, IG1 4QR. Entry is free and refreshments will be available.
