THE Church of Je­sus Christ of Lat­ter-day Saints cel­e­brated the 60th an­niver­sary of the Como chapel in Labouchere Road. The build­ing has played an im­por­tant part in the lives of many fam­i­lies who have at­tended the church’s fa­cil­ity, not only for their Sun­day wor­ship meet­ings, but also for youth ac­tiv­i­ties, women’s and men’s con­fer­ences, com­mu­nity ser­vice projects, wed­dings, fu­ner­als and other im­por­tant fam­ily or pub­lic events. A leader of the church, Bryan Skip­worth said the chapel was more than bricks and mor­tar. “The chapel is a sym­bol of a com­mu­nity and its doors are open to wel­come the gen­eral pub­lic who would like to wor­ship and also par­tic­i­pate in op­por­tu­ni­ties for learn­ing and ser­vice,” he said.
