St. PETER’S CHURCH BARROWDEN RE-ORDERING SEPTEMBER 2018

St. PETER’S CHURCH BARROWDEN RE-ORDERING SEPTEMBER 2018

The Date has been agreed for re-ordering works to begin at St. Peter’s Barrowden

We have finally got to the position where we can start our re-ordering project,
having secured 75% of the funding required.
The church will close on 10th of September and works will beginning on 1st of October.
They are due to be completed by the 3rd of May 2019.
It has taken us seven years to reach this point.
We will continue raising money to fill the gap, but the main work can be completed with the funds already pledged.

There is a lot of work to be done before the church closes and the contractors start.
We have to empty the church, store the items that we wish to retain,
sell items that are no longer required and dispose of the rest.
This will be taking place on Saturday 15th of September starting at 9:00 am.
The pews and stagings then have to be removed, this is planned for Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th of September.

Anyone interested in purchasing a pew can register their interest with
Peter Voller (petervoller@btconnect.com or 01572 747374)
Alternatively, we will be issuing stickers at the last service on Sunday 9th of September,
you will be able to place them on the pew or pews of your choice
or come along on Saturday 15th of September and select your pew.

Thank you to all those who have supported this project,
we look forward to delivering the changes
which will make our church more adapted to the community needs in the 21st century.
