The life team wish all our friends and supporters a wonderful Christmas. Amidst all the hustle and bustle of preparations and celebrations we hope you find time to relax and experience the joy and peace that Jesus brings to our needy world.
And a needy world is what life is all about as we look forward to a future Christmas, when the revamped Parish Hall becomes a hub of activity and loving support at the heart of our community.
So we’re pleased to tell you that important steps are being taken to bring us closer to our vision:
- Architects – We’ve signed the first stages of a contract with Design XY who are especially keen to work with us as a Christian based community project. These early stages will review and refine our plans so that we can move onto accurate costings for the renovation work that needs to be done and an application for planning permission which could be as early as March.
- Finances – Firstly a big thank you to all of you who have started supporting us financially. We are now approaching a regular monthly income of £750 which would enable us to take out a 20 year loan to purchase the building. We are also hopeful that we can reach a target of .£1350 month so that we could reduce the loan to 10 years. We also have enough cash to cover our immediate needs in terms of architects, solicitors and other necessary fees.
- Supporting Churches – Life Dronfield is a major CTDD project so we feel it is very important at this stage to invite all the church leadership teams to an update of the project. This is scheduled for the 30th March. If you are part of a church leadership team please come or if you attend church please encourage any members of leadership teams you know to participate. We can be so much stronger if the local churches are united in their support. Please keep this meeting in your prayers.
- Barn Dance – Please come and bring your friends to support our first fund raising event. A great evening of fun and fellowship is guaranteed. It’s on Saturday the 2nd February and tickets are now available on our website, at Barn Dance Tickets, or from any members of the Core Team or your church contacts for life.
Best wishes from the life team.
