On Sunday the new hall was used by the Tunbridge Wells Ordinariate Group for the first time as the venue for their Sunday school. After several years of witnessing the children jammed into insufficient space on a tiny sacristy floor it was a moment of genuine liberation. Now they have tables and chairs and space in which to move. This is great news!
For some time now, the area around St Anselm's Church in Pembury in Kent was a major building site. The church, which stands near the centre of the village, near the pub and shops, doubled as a hall during the week. Then every Sunday, Father Ed Tomlinson and a team of vcolunteers hurry to arrange the altar, chairs, lectern, kneelers and everything necessary. But that has now all changed.
With major landscaping, and the creation of a new entrance, a parish hall has been built, releasing the original building to become a permanent church standing in a beautiful garden and with its own lych-gate and outdoor Calvary shrine.
