St Bart’s Project Update

St Bartholomew’s Project

Many of you will know that it has been a long held aspiration to have some modern facilities at St. Bart’s and over the last few years we have been working towards this with the generous support of some individuals as well as a major contribution from Friends of Waldron Churches.

We are delighted to advise that, at last, contracts have been signed and the project commenced on Monday 16th November.

The foundations have been laid and the project is on track to see the steel frame arriving towards the end of January 2021. Once this is erected, we shall start to see something of how the finished building will look. We shall have toilets, kitchen and a meeting room etc enabling us to serve the congregation better and to reach out to the local community and our school.

Financing the project remains a challenge as the Covid 19 situation has meant that we have not been able to organise our usual fund raising activities during 2020 and this may remain difficult in 2021 although we are turning our attention to this shortly.

Completion is schedule for the end of May 2021 when we hope that we shall all be able to gather together to celebrate!
