Church gets new lease of life after a decade closed

Halkett Place Evangelical Church in Jersey will soon be officially re-opened after a decade with its doors closed.

Members of the Christian Portuguese Mission have worked tirelessly to bring the place of worship back up to scratch.

The church shut its doors 10 years ago when congregation numbers dwindled and its glass roof began to collapse.

But after a year of repainting and renovating it around their full time jobs the old Victorian church will be officially re-opened at the end of this month.

On Saturday 28th February there will be a civic ceremony with a concert led by the Kings Chamber Orchestra in the presence of several of the island dignitaries, including the Chief Minister.

The final re-dedication service will then take place on Sunday 1st March with a special guest speaker coming over from America to mark the occasion.
