The ARK 


A Community Centre in the centre of the community

The ARK is situated right in the heart of Lapford and is the fulfilment of one of our visions to serve the area. The Old Village Store was bought and renovated by the church to be used as a dedicated community facility.

Serving our community in whatever way we can The ARK is about Acts of Random Kindness.
