Our church hall was built in 1964 and has served us well, but it is showing its age! More than that, it doesn't provide the room and facilities that we need to take our church to the community. We are going to build a new centre and have called the project CentreForward. It is going to cost around £2.8m but, God willing, we should have the new building in place by 2022.
We are now into the 'Home Straight' of our project. We have created a full playlist of videos in order to help you understand more about the project. Here is a link to the full playlist: CentreForward Videos
Levelling up! (21st September)
The groundworkers are now on site. The bushes on the Woodcote Hall side of the old car park are gone, part of the grassed area at the rear of the church is now level with the original hall site, and the roots of the lime trees, which are covered by Tree Preservation Orders, are now protected.
Work has begun on building a large drainage soakaway at the west end of the site. Once this work is complete the foundations will be marked out ready for excavation. Then the build begins!
