St Cyprian - Controversy over the lapsed

Blake: A-I-D-A. Attention, Interest, Decision, Action. Attention - Do I have you attention? Interest - Are you interested? I know you are, because it's fuck or walk. You close or you hit the bricks. Decision - Have you made your decision for Christ? And Action.

When we first reported that St Cyprian's had found new life as a fundamentalist Christian church, it resulted in arguably the most heated debate in the history of the site, with some readers forecasting problems with anti-social behaviour.

Today, we received this message from Nick, who has been affected and wants to know the scale of the problem:

I'm a resident on Braxfield road and was just wondering if you had received any other notes from residents in the same area about the disruption being caused by 'gatherings' at St Cyprian's hall recently?

I understand this is now a temporary church and whilst I appreciate members of this church must meet to express their religion I am extremely disappointed with the complete lack of respect these people appear to have for the local residents.

The oversized meetings appear to be spilling out onto the road (probably because of the terrible state of the internal decor and lack of H&S) where people are creating a lot of noise, dropping litter, smashing bottles, sitting on people's front walls, blocking the road, taking up the resident's parking spaces.....the list goes on!

Would you be able to post a topic about this to see if anyone else in the local area is as equally frustrated with these meetings? Do you know of any contacts in the council who the neighbours could approach to inform them of these activities?

Thanks in advance
