CONNECT

More than just a building project, CONNECT is this church’s commitment to provide improved facilities and community partnership opportunities.

Connect has taken years of prayer and planning, but now we are excited to say that the building work is complete and we are using the church with the new facilities, obviously with Covid restrictions.   The front of the church is a welcoming cafe, called Make and Brew, a space for people to meet and connect.

We have developed a wonderful partnership with Kirsty from Make and Brew to enable this to happen!  We have also installed a lift and have updated our upstairs facilities in order to make our premises as accessible as possible, and to provide high quality meeting and event space for our community.

We still have to contInue to raise funds for CONNECT, so please do keep an eye out for any events happening that will help us pay for all of these wonderful improvements to the building.

Kirsty and her team have been really busy doing what they do best,…

CONNECT UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2020

We cannot wait to get pouring the coffees…

CONNECT UPDATE AUGUST 2020

An exciting visit to the cafe space today accompanied by one of our lovely skilled builders, Steve! It was good to see the under floor heating pipes/tubes being laid ready for those chilly days to come, hard to imagine being chilly at the moment though!  If you zoom in on the photo you might see the tubes. The walls are freshly plastered…

CONNECT: THE BUILDERS ARE BACK!
