Building for Life

Nearly there …

As you may have heard, we are making really good progress and we anticipate that the PCC will be in a position in September to take a decision to proceed with works.

Our architect and the parish delivery team are working very creatively to draw up a contract within our budget. Following negotiations we anticipate that the costs for all the key components of the project may still be some £100,000 more than the £850,000 we had originally budgeted for.

Several recent very generous pledges from grant funders, along with donations in the current congregational appeal, mean that we have now raised just over £900,000. This is a truly amazing achievement!

If you are in a position to donate for the first time or to give a further gift or monthly pledge, now really is the time that you could show your support by giving whatever you can. Please respond in confidence to Bill Lucas, Chair of Fund-raising, via the parish office or by e-mail to bill@bill-lucas.com.
