Restoration Part 2 (With Thanks)

On the evening of Sabbath 28th March the doors opened at 6:30pm sharp, seats were filled, and the roof of Clapton Community Seventh-day Adventist Church was raised with the lifting up of our praises to God. On this particular evening Clapton SDA hosted their second building restoration concert, the first of which took place in June 2014. There was much singing and dancing as guests experienced and thoroughly enjoyed blessings of the evening. We were blessed with music from musicians of various genres; from Classical to Afro-beat, from soloists to groups and intrumental solos. Each musical item was a true blessing.

Clapton Community SDA Church is housed in a magnificent Grade II listed building which was erected in 1891. We purchased the property in 2006 while it was in a derelict state, and have since committed to restoring the temple of God to its former glory. This restoration work will be a timely and hugely costly enterprise, which we know by the grace of God IS achievable.

To date, significant improvements have already taken place on the building, with the next phase of the restoration project being the building of new toilet facilities. The 28th March saw the beginning of fundraising efforts towards this next phase of project. Any financial contributions towards our restoration project will be greatly appreciated. With everything we are and everything we have, we continue to engage our with community in fellowship while sharing the gospel of Christ.

ADRA Bake Sale

On Sunday May 3rd, a bake sale was held at Clapton Community Seventh-day Adventist church. A variety of sweet treats were brought to sell in the hopes of raising money for Adra.

It was a delight to see the young people get involved and bake their own cakes to sell at the event. The youngest was lovely Kacia aged 11, who baked a beautiful and delicious rainbow cake, and one of the first cakes to sell out.
Many from the local community came to support the cause buying bags of cakes and other treats. A few also stayed for a tour of the church’s historic building currently undergoing restoration works.

£312 was raised from the sale for Adra. Even after the cakes were sold out people still turned up 2 hours after the cake sale had ended.
Many who attended the event expressed eagerness for another in the future and even volunteered to bake for it too.
