28th January: Week 1.
This week is mainly taking things apart, removing the wires and pipes that are going to be replaced. We are also finishing off the roof repairs - snow permitting.
We have known for years (since prior to Barbara's arrival in 2008) that our buildings need extensive work.
The Church Hall was built in 1957, with an expected lifespan of 40-50 years, so we are living on borrowed time - and it shows.
The Church is in need of major work - although it is structurally sound in the main. It needs to be rewired and the lighting upgraded, The heating needs to be addressed. It needs redecorating, and some way found to prevent the condensation which is so disfiguring on the walls.
After years of prayer and thought, we plan to bring our community facility into the church building. This means that we can upgrade the facilities we offer and secure their future. We will also be using the church building every day,which will be better for it and will upgrade the lighting and electrics. Not only will this be good for the building, but it means that the history of our community that the building tells will be available to more people.
