Building project

Seeing the need

This project came out of a realisation that our current building does not meet the needs of the local community we are here to serve.  What started as a refurbishment, has developed, out of necessity, into a rebuild of the hall and refurbishment of the worship area.  The church hall building, which was originally a second-hand prefabricated build some forty years ago, has become porous when wind and rain hits the walls; rainwater percolates into the building.  This results in pools of water accumulating throughout the hall, including the kitchen and office. Both the kitchen and toilets are out-dated and needed major work. The church’s worship area also needed attention and is being updated including insulation to the walls and a new ceiling. New lighting and heating is also being installed.

We’re looking to the future

The New Build is Well Underway

This photo is taken from the entrance of the new hall looking through the central welcome area towards the church where the glass wall will be. To the left of pic is the kitchen and Pastor’s meeting room and to the right is the toilet block. To the left of the glass wall will be the new external doors. Also note all the natural light flooding in from the skylight.

The project will include a kitchen with the equipment to cook full meals as well as providing the usual teas, coffees and light refreshments. New toilet facilities are also included. Once completed, we will provide better support for the groups that currently use the premises, as well as first class facilities for the other community organisations who have shown an interest in using the building.
