Ecclesiastes 3 talks about there being times for everything, including a time to tear down and a time to build. It certainly feels like we’ve had our share of tearing down over the past few weeks, particularly in the main church hall, where every time we touched something, it seemed to fall apart! One of our most memorable moments was when a lady who had helped with coffee mornings run by the Methodist church came in and was talking to members. She then suddenly saw the state of the main hall and gasped. “What have you done?” she wailed eloquently. We were quick to reassure her that the room wouldn’t stay in this state!

So… here are some photos to chart the progress of what has been going on in the main hall, which has just recently been professionally re-plastered. We’ve just purchased our own scaffolding, so hope to be able to paint this room soon.
