Rebuild update September 2015

As many of you have probably seen, our baptistry has been built!
The structure is clearly visible from Merland Close. It is a great and important stage in the build, and, indeed, in the life of our church.

Here are some of the things the Bible says on baptisms to guide us in our prayers for the rest of the building project.

1 Peter 3:21 ESV / Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
Matthew 3:16 ESV / And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him;
Matthew 28:19-20 ESV / Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” 

The layout is also taking form giving us a good idea of the size and floorplan of our church. The wall to the right of the baptistry marks the boundary of the worship area. The diagonal wall at the front of the picture below will be the new rear lobby

We will keep you updates with progress on this blog. 

Next week we will have an interview with Ian Ford,
