This last couple of weeks has seen some different trades people start for the first fix phase for trades, including electrical and plumbing.

Planning

Our Non-Material Amendment to Chichester District Council is now submitted for consideration. As a reminder this is for some very minor changes to the doors and glazing at the front of the building. We have been informed that should hear back from the council officers regarding our submission by the end of October.

Finishing

Our wonderful Building Team are now focusing on all the finishes around the different parts of the building. This includes doors, flooring, wall colours etc. This is both exciting and encouraging as it shows the progress being made at the end of our twelfth week of work.

Next steps

The first coats of paint will start in some of the main spaces next week and the air handling units are due to arrive in the next two weeks. The structure and platform for these large units is being built into a space in the roof.

Nearly two years ago, seventeen of us had the joy of visiting a church in Angers for a long weekend. It was full of fun, food and discovery; from an excursion to one of the Loire’s magnificent castles, to a visit to a vineyard as well as ministry on Sunday.  These are some of the reflections from those who went in 2017:

“It was an amazing and memorable experience. For me each day was a real tonic and full of God’s blessings. I went from being really ill the week before to coming home feeling spiritually, emotionally and physically refreshed.” Anne Smith

“We were spoiled rotten, loved and made some incredible new friends. Such a wonderful experience.”  Lee Nancarrow

 “Mike and I joined the group going to Angers not knowing many people. We were made welcome on arrival and the hospitality flowed. Our hosts Michel and Claudette not only took us on the arranged trips, but showed us the area at other times. It was such fun. They visited us when they came over in the summer, which was great. We now have new friends in France.”  Derry Burn

 “France = fun, food, and fellowship; a memorable experience of heartfelt worship with fellow Christians, in both English and French languages, and a real sense of unity” Angela & Brian Benford

 “Fantastic hospitality, great fellowship with our French brothers and sisters and a chance to get to know your fellow travellers better, as well as getting refreshed – perfect!”  Pete Hamilton

 “I felt so welcomed by the community in Angers and really enjoyed getting to know others in the group over a glass of wine and great food! Our hosts were lovely and made us feel right at home. Spending time with people from a different language and culture who share our faith in God was an encouragement and reminded me that we are all one family.” Laura Nancarrow

Are you ready for an adventure in 2019? Are you open to be impacted by God and willing to be a vessel for him?  Then this trip is for you! If you are interested this cultural, relational and missional exchange then get in touch with Laura or Bruno (mail@revelation.org.uk)
