An Emerson Park church is “very grateful” after it received £10,000 from an independent charitable trust to redesign its interior.

More than 3,000 users of Hornchurch United Reformed Church, in Nelmes Road, are set to benefit from the donation, which was decided at Veolia North Thames Trust’s latest meeting.

Rev David Skipp said: “We are very grateful VNTT have provided this funding. “It will make a big difference to the church and means that we can now concentrate on getting the work carried out to enable us to increase our mission and outreach to our local community.”

The money will go towards making better use of the existing building and improving its access.

Several organisations, which also use the church, also stand to benefit, including a pre-school group, Women’s Institute, a bridge club and various fitness groups.

Two other Havering projects were also granted VNTT funding at the meeting.

The Havering Islamic Cultural Centre in Waterloo Road was given £23,600 for air conditioning and Whybridge Primary School in Blacksmith’s Lane received £6,500 for cricket nets.
