I think we’ve finally settled on details for the official opening event enough for me to commit it to the everlasting archive that is the internet.
On Saturday 16th October, we will be having a brief open evening from 5:30, for general nosy-ing around the extension. We will have information about the events we run at the church, and the regular groups that use the facilities.
At 6pm, we will be having a short service of thanksgiving, followed by tea/coffee etc and cakes (which if they look like the pictures we’ve been given will be both miraculous and delicious).
At around 7:30 we will be having a Quiz Aid evening in support of Christian Aid. Come along with a team, or by yourself (we’ll find some friendly faces for you to team up with).
We hope to see you there.
An advance warning – the dedication and celebration for the new extension will be on Sat 9th Oct.
More details when it’s all decided.
If you’ve been keeping up with the building page, you’ll know (in the huge gaps between posts) that we’re nearly done now.
The current aim is to have the car park done next week (w/c 23rd). The front doors are due to go in on 27th, and the carpets will be going down partly before and partly after the front doors (since we don’t want the rain getting onto them yet).
Since the temporary toilets need taking up for the car park to be resurfaced, we will have no loos from about 23rd until we open the new facilities. This will be during the service on 29th (even though we will be a little light on carpet at that point). Anyone desperate to use the facilities before then will have to go to the church office.
If you weren’t convinced yesterday, you will be now. If you look carefully though you might notice a cowboy on the digger.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I can announce the Building Work has started!
Still sceptical? Here’s a picture as proof!
For anyone who wasn’t at the AGM, the building work will be starting on Monday.
They will be disconnecting the water the the existing toilets on Monday and starting demolition on Tues.
Obviously, there’s still some element of ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’, but swing by next week and you’ll be able to see it. God willing, of course.
Let’s just hope the temporary toilets turn up as well….
