Peace finally returns to Graphite House

1 Comment

Following a number of frustrating months for residents of Southwell Road, Lambeth council has finally evicted the Evangelical church from Graphite House.

Thanks to the efforts of a number of active residents and the Loughborough Junction Action Group, Lambeth council finally placed an eviction order on the church.

The last few days saw a totally new development. About half a dozen female church members were racing around on the flat back roof of “Graphite House” shouting to Jesus, exhorting the devil to leave my building, and blowing loud blasts on a long curled trumpet.

Witch craft is a popular ill to cure within evangelical churches and this ceremony was no doubt to “clean” the building of any evil spirits so exorcism’s could be carried out on witches. One does not need a very long memory to recall the horrific case of Victoria Climbie who was deemed to be a witch and died from her awful abuse at the age of eight.

Interestingly, Channel 4 broadcast a episode of Dispatches today at 8 with a number of hidden cameras finding out exactly what went on in these churches.

There are at least 5 other similar churches operating within the area of Loughborough Junction. Are they all operating within the law?

One thought on “Peace finally returns to Graphite House

  1. Yes it was mess for months. LJAG kept their distance but the success is almost entirely down to the neighbours who lived either side of Graphite House.

    What was particularly depressing was the apathetic reactions of Lambeth planning and noise. The chrches appeared to be a very sophisticated operation who worked the system quite skillfully. Because they were dealing with a very PC middle class environment they could tale advantage of the situation, play the race card and enjoy the benefit of the doubt afforded to ‘a church’ but the actual behaviour was quite disturbing. Some if the neighbours went through hell with a PA ie amplified sound and a band at all hours of the night, often until 2am. LJAG suceeded in ignoring it but some residents did push Lambeth very hard and thanks to the great efforts of our local councillors we now have peace again.

    Apparently their is a ‘Despatches’ documentary tonight about the illegal activities of churches in London screening tonight. I look forward to watching someone finally asking the questions that need to be asked.

    Persinally I think the planning and noise laws neeed inspection beecause Lambeth is afraid to enforce them after losing out to clever barristers too often. In my opionion their is too much complexity. Lambeth noise, for example, were making distintions between different types of noise. It was ludicruous at times. Noise is noise. planning abuse is planning abuse. Fewer PAs please and more active civil servants.
