The school summer holidays have seen a flurry of activity in the church building as work continues. The community room is almost complete now (blinds still have to be put back up, the fire exit stained and the notice boards completed and adorned), but a tremendous amount of work has been done in three weeks to decorate this huge room. (You only appreciate its size when the scaffolding is out and you’re painting it!) Today it will see ‘business as usual’ in the morning with the coffee morning on from 10 a.m. until 12 noon, with an extra session of decoration (but this time, making decorations for a wedding reception to be held there in September) in the afternoon.

The corridor is still not complete, with all 10 doors (yes, 10…) still requiring to be glossed next week, and the alcove painting to be finished (another 2 doors there…), but much preparation and initial painting have been completed there.

In addition, our portable baptistery has arrived, a new external notice board has been fitted and new notice boards for inside the building are being sorted, not to mention a host of other small jobs (new door handles, the ladies’ toilets painted and new handles on the kitchen hatch in place), so not bad for 3 weeks’ work!

Tomorrow’s morning service is at Cherry Tree Court (at 10.30 a.m.) with the evening service at Market Street at 6 p.m. Come along and see for yourself!
