A Cranham church has undergone a huge makeover thanks to the kind donations of parishioners and The Veolia Trust.

Moor Lane Church in Cranham has been entirely renovated and churchgoers now have level access which will give wheelchairs and mobility scooters a much easier entrance.

Inside, new toilet facilities including a large accessible toilet with baby changing facilities have been installed, along with an enlarged and updated kitchen.

A church spokeswoman said: “Thanks to a very generous donation from The Veolia Trust and many gifts from church members both at Moor Lane and St. Luke’s the building project undertaken this year has been finished.

“We had a successful open day on November 4 inviting local neighbours to see what had been taking place with the building work.”

On December 10, the church is hosting a pre-school nativity service, before carols by candlelight on December 17. A short communion will also be held at 9am on Christmas Day.
