An event aiming to ‘forge new friendships’ in a Boston church’s local community has seen more than 200 people take part.
The International Day at St Christopher’s church on Fenside Road, in Boston, was organized by the parish of Boston in partnership with BLIC (Bringing Learning into Communities).
It was opened by the Mayor of Boston Coun Brian Rush and Mayoress Jane Rush, with the help of Chase from Paw Patrol.
The event, aimed at all ages, included a bouncy castle, craft activities, pizza making and tasting of foods from around the world.
The Reverend Steve Holt said: “St Christopher’s church is a part of the Parish of Boston with its ethos of Hospitality for all God’s people, and that the church belongs to the people of the town.
“The idea was to open the church up to the local community and invite them along to meet together and to have fun in a relaxed and informal way.
“I am delighted to see so many people in the church and enjoying themselves.
“I know we can forge some new friendships today and that more events will be planned for the future.”
Services take place at the church on the first and third Sundays of the month at 9.30am.
