THE CHURCH of attacked mormon bishop, David Charmbury, has celebrated its 40th anniversary in the company of the now-recovered vicar.
The congregation of the Church of the Latter-day Saints on Clopton Crescent, Chelmsley Wood, welcomed the Mayor of Solihull, Coun Glenis Slater, and her husband, Mr Clive Slater, to the celebration event.
Bishop David Charmbury, the local leader of the church in Chelmsley Wood, was also in attendance following his recovery from an attack which left the 45-year-old father-of-two in an induced coma on the high dependency unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The evening was attended by past and present church members and provided an opportunity to remember people and events from the last 40 years that had contributed to the success of establishing the church in the local area.
Following a tour of the church, Coun Glenis Slater said: “The meetinghouse has become an important part of the local area and the fact that much of the building work was done by the members of the church makes it such a special place for people to practice their faith.”
