Open day for Skinner Street church

A Whitby church is throwing open its doors to the public on Saturday 19 March.

Whitby Evangelical Church on Skinner Street is having an open day between 10am and 2pm and activities will include face-painting, arts and crafts, a book sale and refreshments.

Deacon of the church, John Woollin, said: “We have about one hundred children come to the church every week and when you add the families together we believe we are like a family serving the community, so it’s great to be able to invite other people to join us.”

The open day follows on from the success of the street party that took place two years ago where Skinner Street was closed off for a street party and stalls were set up along the road.
