BRIDGWATER'S Eagle Mountain Church celebrated its fourth anniversary with a black tie celebration thanking all the volunteers who support the church.

The Eagle Mountain Church was established by Joe and Josie Benjamin in October 2013 and has services every Sunday morning in Wembdon Village Hall.

Mr Benjamin said: "Eagle Mountain has been operating in Bridgwater for four years now. We are an independent church whose purpose is to work advance the Christian faith by working within the community."

He said the church provides all manner of support, whether that is spiritual guidance or food, clothing and advancing education in family life.

"We also have a kids service where the children are taught about a Christian faith as well as encouraged to explore their natural talents such as singing and music," Mr Benjamin said.

"Over the last four years we have seen people that have broken drug addictions, alcoholics give up drinking and offered food, clothes sleeping bags to the homeless in Bridgwater," he added.

"The celebration was one of the many things we do with combines socialising and food, whether that is regular outreach meals or barbecues in the summer. We want to raise the profile of our church, support people, and show that we are a helpful, happy, fun-loving bunch," he said.

"We have another branch in Birmingham, and we are looking to expand."
