We are called to serve each other, serve our communities and most of all serve God. In serving God we want to grow our church so that others can experience His grace. One way we can do this is by being welcoming and encouraging others to come and join us. If we want to welcome people to our church then it is our character that is most important, but having the facilities for hospitality also helps.
We are thrilled to now have an approved scheme to construct a kitchenette, providing us with improved facilities that will help us cater for those who attend our church building, either at our services, or one of the many other events we host at All Saints.
It will also open the opportunity to provide refreshments to visitors during the week.
Children are a big part of the church and we want them to feel every bit as welcome as the adults. So the proposal also includes a new crèche area where they can play in safety while the services go on around them.
How can you help this become a reality? The total cost of the next stage is £100,000, of which we already have £60,000 in hand. We therefore need £40,000 more in order for the work to go ahead.
Ways you can help include:
Above all, please pray for the project and that the necessary resources will become available. Prayerful consideration might involve giving to support all that God wants us to do. Responding thankfully for all that God does for us, we may decide to start giving or giving more – giving joyfully, sacrificially and proportionately to that we each can afford.
…and please remember we are seeking this in addition to any regular commitment that you have to supporting the Church.
