Hundreds are expected to attend the new premises of the Life Church in Sycamore Avenue, Burnley, when it opens with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday morning.

The building project began in 2008 but was hit by delays when two developers for the scheme went bankrupt. The multi-million pound venture has an auditorium with a 500-seat capacity, the latest audio and video production and backstage facilities, a large cafe and meeting rooms.

It is being made available to hire and church members hope the building will be an asset to the town.
