Drawings - Autumn 2013

The Planning Application for the rebuild was submitted in October and below are the drawings that accompanied that submission.

There were a number of occasions for the church and neighbours to comment on the drawings and the architects  have done as much as possible to take all concerns into account.

Please continue to pray for the redevelopment with particular focus on the Planning Application being approved and thanks to God for the blessing of the Gift Day.

April Prayer and Fasting

On Tuesday the 9th of April Merland Rise Church (MRC) had  day of prayer and fasting to spend some time thinking about a number of things in our community.  One of those things was the Church Rebuild and Petra put together a prayer station where people could reflect on this great blessing that the MRC has been afforded with the opportunity to rebuild.  Some of the current items that need prayer were also highlighted and there was an opportunity for anyone who came to the station to write down their prayers and Bible verses that were speaking to them.

Thank you to everyone who was involved and who prayed for the rebuild.  Please continue to pray for the redevelopment and here are some of the photos of the prayer station, prayers and verses for inspiration.

In Autumn last year it was agreed at a Church Meeting that we would rebuild our church.

This website is one of the ways the redevelopment team will communicate with church members and the congregation.
