Building Restoration Project

Good News!

We have raised over £60000 and the Builder is due to start Phase 1 of our building project before the end of June 2021. The materials have been ordered and paid for. The money raised is enough to complete Phase 1 of the project.

What is this all about?

Our church building at St. Thomas' Bradley is a wonderful place for us to meet together, to Pray, to Worship and Praise God. The building has already lasted many years past its predicted lifetime but is starting to show signs of wear and tear. The concrete panels which make up the outer walls are cracking and beginning to crumble. We are acting now to preserve the building for future generations.

The plan:

Is to preserve the concrete panels and at the same time improve insulation by encasing the outer shell of the church building with insulation and a brick skin. An early model to present the idea looked like this:

Phase 1:

Of the work will include a new entrance area, a re-designed front gable with illuminated cross as well as building the brick skin over the concrete panels at the car park side of the building round to the front entrance. It will help to preserve the building, improve energy efficiency and the improvements should help to make the building more welcoming and make the purpose of the building (Church) more obvious.

The continuation of the brick skin round the side of the building nearest Bradley Road is not funded yet and will be completed in a future phase of the project.

Praise God!!

God has been so Good to us. Although we have been unable to run many of the planned fund-raising events because of Covid, we have still been able to raise over £60000 to cover the costs of the first phase of our project. Work is due to start before the end of June 2021.
