At the end of 2011, we embarked on the Development Project to make the Church more flexible and accessible to all in the 21st Century. This will include:
A new attractive entrance giving access for all physical abilities to all areas of the Church premises
The levelling of the worship area floor and replacing the pews with chairs, thus giving a large, flexible open space
Providing an insulated ceiling and new, efficient heating system
Providing a second smaller kitchen with a Coffee Lounge area
New entrance with access for all to the premises
This project will:
provide a worship area allowing more flexible forms of worship
provide disabled access to all parts of the premises - access for all
provide greater use of the premises for the Church and Community throughout the day
give groups the facilities to expand their activities
give an enhanced visual presence of the Church on North Street
reduce our carbon footprint
By March 2019, we finally raised all the money required and the builders moved in on Monday 29 April 2019.
Exciting times for us - here are a few pictures of the progress and we'll keep you updated …….
