25th March - Work suspended
Building work has sadly been suspended due to restrictions caused by the Coronavirus situation. Our builders, like many of us, are having to stay at home. We continue to pray for them and for the project as a whole.
Things taking shape
With some good weather during the last weeks in March, the foundations of the new baptistery have been laid. The new kitchen, store and lobby to the toilets in the new building are also underway.
