The beginning of an adventure?

All Saints church building

Over the past few years we as a church have been more than aware that our church building is getting a bit old and run down. We've had a few warning shots with slates slipping down the roof, drains blocked, all that glamorous stuff they don't tell you about at theological college.

 

In 2017/18 we held a community and church consultation on whether we should actually sell up our building and take the money to build something new in and for the community. Anyway, after a year long process we decided together that we wanted to keep the building, but make it fit for purpose for the 21st Century, which is what this new blog, and our mission is going to be focussed on for the next few years.

 

We have just created a Go Fund Me Page, which you can see here and this will help us raise some immediate funds to replace the roof.

 

We have a Church Building Development Team which is made up of myself - Phil the vicar, Bee - churchwarden, Sandy and John, David, and Holly. We will be steering the project over the next few years, so your prayers would be appreciated! One of our aims is to communicate as much as possible what is going on so we all stayed informed. We will share our successes, and I am sure our frustrations too.

 

So, what is next? Well, it just so happens that All Saints is due its five year building inspection, which is called a Quinquennial. Once we have this we will be able to prioritise the works that need to happen, and of course see where we need to raise the money! So, you can come back here from time to time and hopefully we will be able to share this 'adventure' with you.
