A Cannock church has celebrated its first birthday despite the theft of hundreds of pounds of audio equipment.

Members of CreateChurch:Cannock, who worship at the Electric Palace Picture House, discovered the break-in when they arrived to set up for the service on Sunday morning. They found that two JBL speakers worth around £700 had been taken from a storage room at the cinema. The thieves also made off with a number of tools being used to renovate the cinema.

Despite the theft, the congregation continued with the church’s birthday celebrations, accompanied by acoustic guitars instead of the usual band.

Church leader Steve Graham said: “Music is a big part of what we do at Create so to walk in and find someone had stolen something so integral to us was really disappointing. Thankfully we were able to get a bit “creative” and carried on regardless.”

The celebrations will continue with an open mic night on Wednesday, September 18, at 7:30pm at Caffe del Nino in High Green Court. All are welcome.

Steve added: “This is a great opportunity for us to use some of the skills we have to have a laugh and get to know some of the other people in Cannock who enjoy playing or listening to live music. This is an event for everyone and really has very little to do with traditional organised church.”

CreateChurch:Cannock meets from 10am every Sunday at the Electric Palace Picture House. They also organise the popular cinema club which takes place on the last Saturday of each month.

Beautiful ThingsA team of volunteers from America is coming to Staffordshire next month (JUNE) to work in the community and stage free family fun events.

The 60-strong choir from Shades Mountain Baptist Church in Alabama will join forces with members of CreateChurch:Cannock and Stafford’s Rising Brook Baptist Church to revamp Cannock’s cinema and help families with light DIY or gardening projects.

At the end of the week-long event, dubbed Beautiful Things, there will be free family fun activities in Stafford and Cannock.

The team will spend Wednesday, June 12, working in the Electric Palace Picture House in Cannock, replacing seats, painting walls and tiling toilet facilities.

They will then move on to the Bevan Lee estate in Cannock where they will help households with activities such as gardening, painting and cleaning. Flyers will be distributed to the estate beforehand and people can opt in to receive assistance if they wish.

The choir will also be visiting primary schools in Cannock and Hednesford to teach the children songs which will be performed at the fun day on Saturday, June 15, when families can take part in free activities such as face painting, bouncy castle and a football cage, as well as enjoying a free American-style barbecue.

Sponsored by solicitors Pickering and Butters, who have offices in Stafford and Rugeley, the fun day will take place at the Signpost Centre, Highfields, Stafford, from 10am to 1pm, and at Cannock Park from 3pm to 6pm. All are welcome.

Steve Graham, church leader at CreateChurch:Cannock, said: “We are really excited to be partnering with our friends from the States. The whole purpose of this week is to help the local community and let them know that the church is interested in both the people and the town. There are lots of people out there that believe Cannock is a great place and we hope this week will show our belief in that.”

The Staffordshire churches became partners with Shades Mountain Baptist Church thanks to Alabama couple Richie and Denise Bruce, who live in Stafford and attend CreateChurch:Cannock.

Michael Adler, worship pastor at Shades Mountain Baptist Church, said: “We already have many UK friends whom we have grown to love during the planning process of this trip. In just a few short days we will be able to board the plane for Stafford and Cannock, see our friends face to face and join together to serve the community.”

  • CreateChurch:Cannock is a friendly new church meeting every Sunday from 10am at the Electric Palace Picture House in Cannock. See www.createchurchcannock.co.uk for more information.
