Please pray for the project:

  • Give thanks for God's provision of this building and for his timing.
  • Give thanks for the monies received so far, for the generous donations which enabled us to buy this building and pay the professional fees to date, and pray that funds will be provided to complete the work.
  • Pray for wisdom for those making decisions about what to cut from the plans to remain within budget.
  • Pray for the work of the architects, the engineers and all those who will undertake work on our behalf, and for the selection of the building contractors.
  • Pray that, when completed, the building will be well used and will bring glory to God.
  • Pray that, until the conversion is completed, we will be able to accommodate our overflowing meetings safely and practically.
  • Prayerfully consider how you can help.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain.”
Psalm 127: 1
