In 2015 God gave Alec a Word to "Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes." (Isaiah 54:2)
The response was to buy our current building which was larger than our previous building. From day one, it was envisaged that the church would grow and move upstairs into the UpperRoom. Eight years later and we sense God is giving us the greenlight to go upstairs!
In developing upstairs, our current sanctuary can be re-developed into a much-needed kids/youth space. In developing such first-class facilities for the church, we'll also be able to share these much-needed facilities with local community groups, fulfilling our vision of being "a church at the heart of the community, with the community at heart."
The completed project will cost in the region of €200,000. Our mortgage is almost repaid, so we sense this is a good time to take on a loan. We intend to raise a good chunk of that, in addition to the €40k in savings. We'll be running a series of monthly worship nights in the UpperRoom, where we'll encourage our church, to invest into the project. We'd love to raise all the funds and complete the project debt-free.
