Almost there…. And a bishops blessing

we were fortunate on Sunday that Bishop Gregor was able to give a blessing to the new development space when visiting to conduct some confirmations.

The building is not quite completed yet but we were able to be in the gathering space and it was a great opportunity to see how things are progressing.

we hope that the work shall be finished in the next few weeks and groups will be able to begin using the facilities from the start of November. If you are interested in using the facilities either on a regular basis or for a special one off event then please contact us on

We hope you enjoy some photos of the blessing and the beautifully restored stained glass windows in the gathering space

It’s all coming together…

last night it was great to see so many people join us to hear about the progress of the project and the details of when and how they can start to use the space that we have been so patiently waiting for.

It also provided those present the opportunity to have a look around the development in its partially completed state and start to think about how the spaces can be used to serve the community. Very exciting times ahead.
