VIDEO: Lantern Methodist Church and Arts Centre host community Christmas celebration

The Raynes Park Lantern Methodist Church and Lantern Arts Centre celebrated Christmas at their joint community event on November 25th.

The two charities work together to fund and house a range of community initiatives, including their welfare hub that provides people with advice and support on various health and wellbeing, employment and social concerns.

A number of dance and theatre companies use the arts centre to bring low-cost creative outlets to the community.

The Christmas celebration showcased these projects, and helped fundraise for the church’s planned renovations. 

Lantern Arts Centre Operations Manager Steve Rees explained that the works would improve accessibility and safeguarding in the building, which is more than one hundred years old.
