Leandra and Colin Lesal and their 18-year-old son have been living in a room above the church hall for six years.
In December they received a notice from the church telling them to vacate the premises after a new reverend took over.
Leandra said that when they first moved into the property it was arranged that she and her husband would work for the church and live in the property rent free. This arrangement was made with the previous reverend and church wardens and had lasted for six years.
“My husband did maintenance work and gardening and was the caretaker for the church. I did messenger work, cleaning the church and some administrative work. That is how we paid rent,” she said.
