Report on EBA Project 2016

In June, at the assembly the EBA launched Project 2016 – Gorleston Baptist Church in Norfolk presented their project;
Our project is to completely refurbish the rear to include a new toilet area with shower, new entrance new kitchen, new roof, new bright airy hall which will have a mezzanine floor with extra rooms. It will also provide a better atmosphere for the existing Drop- In folk, and to be able to make it available to the community for occasional use".

Six months later they have sent an update as to how things are going;

“The project has been held up for a few months, but since October the Redevelopment Team have been working flat out to try and catch up time.
We have seen the architect and have approved the final set of plans for the building works. It went before Great Yarmouth Borough Council Planning Committee in December, and in early January we were informed that the plans had been passed.
Another meeting has been held and we have agreed for a site survey of topological survey of the grounds, and then we should be ready to go to builders quotes."

The church is very thankful for the financial gifts they have received so far from EBA churches and thank those who have been praying for them.   Please keep praying that the next six months sees work started on the work in practical terms and for those within our community that will benefit from the finished work.
