Heart of the Community Update – August 2016

 Thanks to the amazing £565,000 response to the Heart of the Community Gift Day in May, work is now underway on the next phase of the St Michael’s Centre as well as improvements to the church and Old School Rooms.

 – Our architects have re-designed the proposed toilet extension to the old church and we are seeking planning approval for the new design, which is slightly smaller .

 – The main entrance lobby and toilets in the Old School Rooms will be refurbished, including new flooring.

 – Work on the mechanical and electrical infrastructure for Phase 3 of the St Michael’s Centre will begin in September, with the installation of most of the underfloor heating, cabling and utilities to the arched barns area and the balcony.

This will enable phased completion of the various rooms as further funds become available.

We are also delighted that we will be able to repay the first Charities Aid Foundation loan of £150,000 in December.

A tenth of all money donated by members of St Michael’s is being used to support building and development projects undertaken by our mission partners in the UK and overseas and will be allocated by the Mission Action Group.

 Thank you to everyone who is supporting the HOTC project through prayer, regular giving and one-off gifts.
