The official opening of the community room extension at St Aidan’s Church in the Stobhill area of Morpeth will take place on Sunday.

Known as the Beacon Project, it has been used by a range of local groups since the interior works were completed in September and there are plans for this new section of the building and the grassed area at the front to be the venue for inclusive community activities.

The Acting Bishop of Newcastle – the Rt Revd Frank White – will be coming along for the service, which starts at 10am.
