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. We are currently in the middle of the building stage, which is both exciting and scary. Once completed, the front of our church will become a welcoming cafe and a space for people to meet and connect. We are developing a wonderful partnership to enable this to happen – more details to come! We are also installing a lift and updating 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.
Passing by yesterday, we couldn’t help but notice that the new cafe area has lights now!
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…
All of the glass is now in and our building is officially water tight. The Link Team are busy putting together a shopping list of furniture for the new cafe and growing plants to make it look fresh and airy.
Over the last few weeks, the builders have been busy up at the church. The metal frames and the glass for the windows are going in. The sky lights are complete in the new Link extension and the glass that forms the front of the building is going in too. The new Link area, where the cafe will be, is coming on…
WELCOME BACK TO OUR FABULOUS BUILDING TEAM! We are so excited to have our builders back on site, working on a modified site to comply with new restrictions. They are working on putting the roof on the new link extension, as well as being able to get on with construction in other parts of the building. In a strange way, it helps…
On Monday 5th May we are expecting work to being again on the Connect development. Our building contractors will of course be taking all advised care and precautions as they start to move the project forward again.
The new emergency exit is completed. This will enable us to open up the first floor for wheelchair access. The new toilets are a great hit with youngsters!
The concrete sub base has been poured. Once this is set and the roof is on, then the installation of the under floor heating can begin.
The steels which form the roof and front of the new link extension have been craned in and bolted together.
