At our Autumn church members’ meeting we were pleased to agree unanimously to ask FIEC practical services to act as “Holding Trustees” on behalf of the church. The Elders and Deacons will function as “Managing Trustees” i.e. be responsible for daily affairs of the church in the normal way. This step is further progress in “Buying the Building”
Also – more information has gone out to various friends old and new who might value the opportunity to support this venture.
We are aiming to raise £162500 to purchase the freehold from the Railway Mission
The Railway Mission is the historic umbrella body for christian work to the railway community – previously in railway centres through local Mission Halls, and now in the railway industry at large by means of regional Chaplains.
April 8th: Since we started the appeal we have raised – in gifts and pledges – somewhere in the region of £70000, for which we thank God.
