  • "Churches exist for a specific purpose, which is fair enough. A place where like minded people can gather to bond, learn and praise their god.

    There are many people of different or no religion who might not feel comfortable taking part in this event because of where and who is staging it.

    Can you imagine all the little muslim children gleefully telling their imam what a great day they had at the christian church? And the imam exclaiming how wonderful, you should go more often....

    Sounds idyllic doesn't it, but let's get back to the real world.

    Public funds should not be spent this way on exclusive groups.
    I know certain people will say the church is not exclusive and they welcome anyone, and I'm sure in their hearts they sincerely believe that. But welcoming someone and someone feeling welcome are two different things."

Plans for a central Watford church’s family event this summer have been given a boost after getting a council cash grant.

St John's Church, in Sutton Road, has received £668 from Hertfordshire County Council to help with the costs of the Central Watford Community Family Fun Day and Proms Concert in August.

The money has come from the council’s locality budget scheme.
