MEMBERS of a Huntingdonshire church, which started life in a Hemingford Grey home, have been marking its 25th anniversary.
Huntingdonshire Community Church was formed in 1982 when 15 adults and a few children began meeting at a village home.
The congregation has grown to nearly 200 adults and children, and the meeting venue has had a variety of homes. Founders Dick and Jean Jennings said the idea had been to create a family.
"We wanted to be similar to the church of Jesus's time and called ourselves the community church because we didn't just want to meet on a Sunday.

"We wanted to be like a family and also serve those in the community around us."
The church meets in the Performing Arts Centre, at Hinchingbrooke School, after outgrowing the Reading Rooms in Hemingford Grey, Godmanchester Primary School, and St Peter's School.
