The first contract was signed on 20th May – the contractor will be on site from Monday 10th June, we will be worshipping in the hall from 16th June.

There is much to do over the next few weeks – and you may be asking what you can do to help, here are some ways:

  • Offers of spare storage space
  • Help sorting the church on 1st June
  • Offers of transport to tip/hall/storage
  • Help with final clear out after our final service on 9th June
  • Help with setting up the hall for worship from 16th June onwards
  • Offers to help with transport to the hall

There is a shortfall in funding, if you’re wondering how you can help, here are some ways:

  • Be thinking of some ways to fundraise individually or in groups as we launch our season of talents
  • Regular giving specifically for the Create 800 project
  • Offer to lend the church money
  • If you know of any potential funders
  • Inform contacts in the community of our project and need of funding

This is an enormous task, what else can you do?

  • ps.121:1: unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain – the foundations of our project must be prayer and continuing to see God’s vision for St James
  • Commit this to regular prayer
