In case you missed the announcement last Sunday, I wanted to let you know the full results of our November Gift Days for the New Building Fund.
The total amount given, including cash, cheques, bank transfers, pledges, and gift aid amounted to a grand total of:
That’s a huge amount of money … so let me say a huge,
Adding that to what was received during the Gift Days in May, it now comes to a total of £1.86m given and pledged over the course of just seven months. That is a ridiculous amount of money and represents a huge amount of faith and sacrifice by so many people. I’m a little overwhelmed to be honest!
For those who have made pledges, please do redeem them as soon as you are able.
Additionally, we do need to raise that last £140,000 needed to finish the job, so do be praying and seeking God about that.
We have several months to do it in, so for those who have not given yet, do consider making a gift, and for those who given already, please keep asking God if there is more he wants you to do.
In the mean time: THE BUILDING FUND REMAINS OPEN! 😃
Thanks. One final thing:
Building work is now underway.
Our contractors (O&D Construction) have taken over the site and put fencing up. Proper hoardings will follow in the next weeks and the demolition and construction work will develop in the months ahead. We will try to post interesting photos when we can, but this lot is the best we can do right now:
In the mean time, for your own safety, please remember that we no longer have the full car park here at the Welcome Centre. There are a few spaces available for those who are employed to work here and for a few of our volunteers and visitors to the building too, but the days of free parking for popping into town have gone!
And please also remember that the building site, behind the fences, is now absolutely off limits! We have had to remind a few people of that this week …
