Grand opening of our newly refurbished church building

After years of fund-raising and planning and after seven months of holding our church services at Beaver Road Primary School, we are delighted to be back in our own building. Our century-old church building (built in 1900 actually) has been renovated and extended. It now has a new main entrance and foyer on School Lane. New rooms include an office, a small meeting room, kitchen and toilets. The sanctuary has been completely refurbished and new windows are currently being installed. The ground floor is entirely accessible throughout. Extensive renovations have also been made to the Beaver Road entrance, foyer and hallway. The Marion Scott Playgroup and Beaver Road PlayStation are now fully operational at the Beaver Road end of the building and other community groups have now resumed their evening activities in the upstairs hall.

Celebrations to mark the opening of our newly refurbished building will take place from Saturday 14 January 2012. These will include:

Saturday 14 January
2.30pm Ribbon cutting
3.00pm Service of Dedication and Thanksgiving
7.30pm Celebration Concert

Monday 16 – Saturday 21 January
Open Week
10 am – 12 noon

Wednesday 18 January
