‘Unless the Lord builds the house the builders labour in vain.’ Psalm 127:1
Work continues apace with the church building project. The Property Development Group are working with the appointed architects, Hall Black Douglas, to develop the pre-planning application for submission to Belfast City Council’s Planning Department. This is based on the outline option as agreed by Session and Committee and presented recently to the Congregation.
As reported in the April/May edition of Knock Life a recent building survey has confirmed that the main Church building is in poor condition. Congregation Committee has agreed that restoration work should start as soon as possible. The work will start within the next few months and should take around six months to complete.
Further information will be presented at the AGM on 18 April.
Key things to know:
• A Master Plan will be developed looking at the whole site, outlining what development is required and offering phased solutions
• The initial budget is £2.5m (including fees, contract work, fit-out, contingency and VAT.
• £500,000 of this has been allocated to the restoration work
• The project is estimated to take 5 years
Personal donations form a substantial proportion of our overall funding for the project. If you would like to give to the project you can do so by setting up a monthly standing order (please contact Stephen Curragh or Church Office) or by making a donation by way of the striped envelopes marked ‘Building Fund’.
The Property Development Group would like to thank everyone who has fed into the project to date. We are keen to ensure everyone has an opportunity for input and to hear from as many users as possible. If you have any comments please submit these using the online form or simply talk to any member of the group directly.
