The journey towards our new building continues this summer, as we are getting truly technical and into the minutia of the building design – drawings detailed enough for builders to give us a definitive quote and tender to build.

This drawing stage will continue through August, and by late August we should be in a place to put out to tender and begin the stage of choosing a builder.

Alongside this, a few notes for prayer: We continue to work through some technical legal issues to complete the sale of our old Bridlington Avenue site, something we pray will come to a completion very soon. We are also working through the heads of terms on the purchase of the new site.

While all these things take seconds for me to write to you, they in fact take quite some time in conversations with solicitors, lawyers and the various other interested parties. I am so glad we have an excellent Team carrying the project forward – it would not be happening without them.

Please continue to pray, give and stay in anticipation for more milestones to be reached soon.
