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.
