A church celebrated its 80th year of parish life with a fun day for the whole family.

St Cedd’s Church, in Lodge Avenue, Dagenham, opened up its doors to the community on Saturday.

The day featured games, face painting, a bouncy castle, stalls and a barbecue.

There was also a chance to reflect in the prayer tent and take in the aroma of fresh flowers scattered around the church.
