St Hilda's, the 'church in a cupboard', bids farewell after 27 years
A church service to say farewell to a community church dubbed “the church in a cupboard” was “a lovely occasion” said a neighbouring vicar.
St Hilda’s Church, based in Leavesden Green Community Centre, Clarke Way, held a farewell service to say goodbye after 27 years. The decision to close its doors came due to a decline in clergy and resources.
Reverend Chris Davey, vicar of All Saints, in All Saints Crescent, held the farewell service on Sunday (October 21).
Rev Davey said: "The service went really well and both churches came together. It was a very lovely occasion."
Members of the congregation at St Hilda’s are now welcomed to worship at All Saints Church in All Saints Crescent.
