Building Project under way!

DBCCprojection01

Everyone associated with Didsbury Baptist Church knows that we have been fund-raising for a decade in order to improve our buildings. We want to make the space more accessible and welcoming to the wider community. We want to bring the main entrance round to the  School Lane side of the building (shown above) and make much-needed improvements inside.

We are pleased to announce that just last week we submitted a planning application and we hope to be in a position to start work at the turn of the year. While we await planning permission and discuss the reordering of the inside of the building, we need an extra fund-raising push in order to meet our target by the end of the year.

We are holding an open day (open morning, really) from 10.00 a.m. till 12 noon on Saturday (27 June) and a Gift Day on Sunday (28 June). I don’t usually get excited about buildings because, for me, church is about people. Yet what we can offer our community is so limited by our building that I can hardly wait for the work to begin. We believe that the changes will greatly enhance what we can do in Didsbury and we are praying for God’s help to accomplish it.

If you are near Didsbury on Saturday, pop in, enjoy a cup of coffee and see what we are up to. I look forward to seeing you there!

  1. Looks good! You mean people will no longer have to wend their way through from the current main entrance…

    I have happy memories of preaching and worshipping at Didsbury and wish you well in this exciting new development

  2. Dead right! Good to hear from you Catriona and thank you for your good wishes. Perhaps you would come back and preach once we’ve had the work done!
