Site Building Project
Update June 2017
Three (3) Quotations have been received for Stage 1 of the Building Project. The quotations are for the new building work and do not include the cost of painting the ceiling of the Church and new carpeting of the Church. Two further firms have to the end of the month to submit their quotations.
The quotes that have arrived are much higher in price than anticipated, so are needing to seek MacChap congregational approval for an increase in spending on the project from the previous $350 000, to now $500 000.

There will be problems during the building work, no doubt.
It will be uncomfortable while the work happens. Things will not be what we are used to.
We will not have a toilet in the church while the building work is in progress.
The crèche and baby room/ meeting room will not be there until the work is completed. All the things we store in those rooms will need a new home (including the coffee cart) while the building work is in progress.
Also we will be sharing the site with building activity, delivery trucks, building trades people & their vehicles.
So if you use the church property during the week between the hours of 7:00am & 7:00pm or on Saturday between 8:00am & 4:00pm expect things to be very different & you may not be able to drive onto site & most likely you will not be able to park in your favourite parking spot. You may be told not to park in the main church parking area at all as a concrete truck or steel delivery is about to occur.
This period will not be long and the finished extension, I am sure will be well worth the small period of discomfort.
I trust you will continue to pray for the project team & for all of us as we now embark on this major task and raising the funds to pay for it.
If I can help you with anything re the technical part of the work please send me an email.
