Progress report – 19th January 2023
With a staircase in the Cornerstone drop off area, scaffolding in place, inside and out for the building of the accessible door, and boilers in their new home – the former outside toilet – there are signs of the end of the work and not just the beginning.
Work on the floor still continues, not just laying the slabs but also fitting the 20+ floor boxes and related “access points”, however awkward is the position where you have to work.
We are now getting enquiries for using the church for conferences as well as concerts. Its exciting to think that we will soon have a church and not just a building site.
To finish the work, we still need more funds – even if you have given already, please go to the website and donate today.
Although the building itself is closed, worship continues in The Cornerstone on Sundays (8, 9.30 and 11.15am) and on weekdays (Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 am and Thursday at 9 am) and the bell ringers have access to the tower. There is still access to almost all the churchyard either through the lychgate in London Road or the double gate in Norreys Avenue. The memorials by The Cornerstone and by the vestry door can be accessed by arrangement with the Parish office.
