Church Move Update 31st January 2016
This last week a couple of meetings were held with Stuart Finn who is our consultant from London helping us with
the church move project. The afternoon meeting covered a long list of items relating to the new build itself
. Heating
. Possible alterations to the toilet and kitchen plans
. Details of the main entrance
. Possible inclusion of a dedicated space for a soft play area for toddlers
These matters will now be examined further by Stuart (in consultation with Gareth, the architect,) the New Build
Vision Group and its sub groups.
The evening meeting looked at non building topics and these included;
. The development of an overall timetable of the many actions required so we can get a better idea of when
we might be able to move into the new building.
. The sale of Mill Court
. The setting up of the church as a registered charity
. Bidding for external funding including the production of a presentation pack
Members of the NBVG and others from the church will be continuing to work on these matters over the coming
weeks and months, keep them in your prayers.
Further details of were we are in the process and who to talk to about the churches move were set out in the
January news sheet.
