Family Church Havant embarked on their annual Easter giveaway to kick-start the recent celebrations.

Laden with an arm full of chocolates, members of the Family Church Havant congregation took to the streets, to knock on the doors of their local residents, offering them each a chocolate Easter gift.

Steve Carey, Pastor of Family Church Havant, said: ‘For us Botley Drive and the roads surrounding the church are our local community and as a church we love being part of that community.

‘For the past four years at Easter, everyone in the congregation brings in the boxes of chocolates to give away.

‘It’s such a highlight in the Family Church calendar and we enjoy going out seeing the familiar faces.’

As well as a chocolate gift, members of the community also received an invite to the Empower Centre Havant Open Day.

This is a completely free family event and will take place on Saturday, from 11.30am – 2.30pm at the Empower Centre Havant, 47 Botley Drive, Havant, PO9 4PJ.

The event is open to the entire community and surrounding areas.

During the day there will be a variety of fun activities designed for the whole family, including a bouncy castle, face-painting, a photo corner, and a wide range of children’s craft activities.

Free refreshments will also be provided, including candy floss and popcorn.

A selection of the refreshments for the event are kindly being donated by One Stop on Botley Drive.

Family Church Havant has grown from strength to strength since 2009 and now has a regular attendance of over 100 people for their Sunday morning service.

After taking up various temporary locations over the years, Family Church Havant has now found permanent residence on Botley Drive, Leigh Park.

Family Church Havant is part of Family Church which consists of 11 successful congregations including Portsmouth, Gosport and Guildford.
