Have your say

A CHURCH in Gosport is opening late at night to speak to people enjoying themselves on a night out.

St Mary’s Church, in High Street, Gosport, has already run successful Saturday night events.

Each night more than 130 people have come off the street to light a candle, enjoy the peace or listen to live music.

Now on Saturday, December 14 members of the church’s congregation will take to the streets with lanterns and invite passersby into the church.

The Nightfever event starts at 7.30pm and finishes at 10.30pm.

For more on the initiative, call the church office on (023) 9258 0119.
