On the pathway

30 May 2014

THERE are parishes in Ely diocese which are closer to Peterborough than to their own cathedral city, and Hampton is one of them. A new church of Christ the Servant King is being built there, and the path to it will be a permanent reminder of all the people who have supported the construction of the church.

Names are engraved on each brick, and include members of the congregation and other individuals, schools, businesses, and also "the names of some of the loved ones who are no long with us", the Priest-in-Charge, the Revd Sylvia Kinder, says. She is seen here with four children from local schools as they present their engraved bricks.

The new church, which will seat 250 people, and its small adjoining hall will be opened in September. It will not only provide a place of worship, but will, in the future, also include a community café, one of the centres for the Peterborough foodbank, and a whole range of courses and services to meet the needs of the people of Hampton.
