July 2016


St Matthew's embarked upon a renovation of the church hall this summer. Work as progressed smoothly to provide the church and wider community witha facility 'fit for purpose'. The 'logistics' have been demanding. Sessions for our successful Citizenship classes have had to be moved and an immense amount of stock of donations made by the public to the Nearly New Shop have had to be removed while the shop was re-wired and redecorated; then removed again once the work on the main hall was resumed. Some very 'heavy lifting' indeed was required of our volunteers as can be imagined in the attached photo slideshow.

On completion the St Matthew's Church Hall will be an importnat asset to both our church and the whole of our diverse and thriving community.
