At The Granary, work has been completed, by contractors working on the problem of years of pigeon occupation and what is politely called guano!
It is great to see something actually happening on the site, as most of the huge amount of work so far completed has been legal architectural or planning. Much investigative work has also been done to find out where, and how, we can reconnect the building with services.
On Sundays 1 and 8 March we are having gift days for the redevelopment work, which we estimate will cost in the region of £600,000 (in addition to the purchase price).
The purchase is moving ahead slowly with contracts being written, valuations undertaken and searches being conducted.
It is so good that at the same time as we are working through the practicalities of buildings we are, as a church, having a period of focused prayer for our city. From a spiritual point of view “unless the LORD builds the house, we are labouring in vain”
