New look church all set for big re-opening

A FILEY church is throwing open its doors this weekend to mark a big refurbishment.

St Johns Church, in West Avenue, is having a two-day celebration to herald its new look, which will include a special blessing.

The church will be open today from 10am until 3pm for people to pop in and see the changes to facilities.

Local groups, who regularly use the church’s parish hall, will also be available for people to speak to and talk about the various activities they hold.

Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be served.

Tomorrow, the Archdeacon of East Yorkshire will give a blessing to the church to mark its re-opening.

The blessing is due to take place at 3pm.
