We continue to pray and work towards a new building for Oakhall Church – our prayer: that through our use of this tool, many will hear about the life-changing love of Jesus while many others grow in Him…
TENDERS ARE IN & NOW, NEGOTIATIONS…
An enormous amount of work continues behind the scenes.
Last week the analysis of the tenders were completed.
As the price of the tenders is higher than we had been informed they would be, we are now entering negotiations to reduce the cost without reducing the quality or effectiveness of the building.
- please pray for these negotiations led by Paul Bowker;
- please pray that the price can be nailed down quickly so that we can proceed.
THE OAKS PLANNING PERMISSION
The “Oaks Christian Trust” plans to make a gift towards the new church building from the sale of “The Oaks” (our youth centre in Caterham Valley). This will cover a large proportion of the cost of the project.
Developers plan to buy “The Oaks” when planning permission is granted but they are having difficulty obtaining this. (This indicates again how remarkable it is that we have planning permission for our new church building!) The team are looking at other ways that this gap in funding can be bridged temporarily.
- please pray that when building on the new site is ready to begin, it will not be delayed by funding.
We as a church are giving generously to this project. Thank you for your part as we pray and give. We praise God together and look to Him as we press forward!
