These are some of the projects for which we are saving to provide equipment or facilities which will enhance the ministry of the church.
This is a huge project to refurbish and upgrade both the Upper and Lower Halls but a lot has been given or pledged already.
The radiators in the Lower Hall are not working as effiently as they should. They need to be overhauled in order to give them a new lease of life.
The Church Hall car park is in need of resurfacing with marked parking spaces. At present the surface is cracked and uneven and floods in places when there is heavy rain.
The computer we use in church for services - projecting the words of songs, videos and Powerpoint presentations - is no longer up to the job.
We would like to buy software that would make all visual media run smoothly, and a new or refurbished computer would be required to run the software. A suitable laptop is also needed for use in the hall for Turning Point.
The plan is to resurface the path from the main gate to the entrance to the church building. The path is uneven in places and resurfacing will prevent further deterioration.
A new welcome board is need to display information at the way-side pulpit. The cost covers signage
A second radio microphone is needed for worship on Sundays and at other times so that more than one person can participate in leading the service with a microphone than enables them to move around and be hands-free.
At present we do not have enough chairs for large numbers of people. Chairs cost £12 each.
These chairs are needed for those using the Hall who are not so mobile. These chairs cost £50 each.
Additional tables are needed as replacements for those that are no longer usable.
Some of the windows in the church building have minor damage that needs to be repaired and the stained glass window in the belfry requires new protection on the outside and some cleaning and repair work.
