2018 marks the Diamond Jubilee of the Dedication of the current church building (the 6th incarnation of our church since the parish was founded).
The last building was destroyed during the bombing of London in WWII.
To celebrate we are laying on services and events throughout 2018 (see below).
The Albaraca Nursery School in the Gambia has been open since 1997.
It is a UK registered charity and provides nursery education for 160 children between the ages of three and seven. There are now 7 teachers (6 of whom are fully trained and qualified), with 5 rooms, a kitchen and small medical area. The primary aim of the school is in the provision of quality nursery education, but the charity also aims to support the wider community,
for example in the supply of mosquito nets for school age children at
the start of the rainy season. 5 local Gambians help manage the
school, which runs on a budget of £20-25,000 per year.
