What an amazing and generous Church family we belong to. Thank you to everyone who has pledged and given to support our Building4Life fund. The total raised or pledged so far has risen to £122,371.91 (20 July 2017).

There is still a way to go until we reach our Sept 1st target of £951,240, but we are well on the way, as our total funds to date now stands at £738,370 and we have a further £212,870 to find. Please join us in praying that grant applications being made at the moment will bring in the remaining sums needed to start the project in mid October.

There are four companies currently looking to submit tenders for the building phase, and we are hoping to receive bids by 11 August 2017 from these builders.

Next week, (w/c Monday 24 July) we hope to find out which elements of the build will be subject to VAT, and then with the additional furnishing costs, we will be in a better position to explain the final sums which will be required to finish the project, once the main contract phase is signed and underway.

If you are able to offer support to the Building 4 Life fundraising team or if you have other questions please contact Maggie Nichols and the Building 4 Life team building4life@christchurchdownend.com
