Church Update November 2013


Well, after many years of exploring avenues and debate, the church members have decided to refurbish the church to be a multifunctional building.

At the special church meeting on Sunday, 20th October, 98% of the church members who attended, agreed to a proposal set out by the Working Party and the Deacons.

In layman’s terms the proposal set out a plan to convert the church by levelling the floor, moving the entrance to the middle by moving the “William Carey” window. The vestry area is to be converted into toilets, kitchen and office and a new room in place of the organ. All this is providing the funds can be can be put into place.

The full proposal is available on request either an electronic version or a paper copy.

There is going to be a need for compromise and change over the next 12 months and beyond. I am sure that there will be a great deal of discussion over the plans for the future and we shall probably never all agree on the final plans whether it be the colour of the walls or the size of the cookers in the kitchen but things will change at Carey which we hope will be for the better. There will be some changes which will need to be temporary whilst the work is carried out.

The most important thing is that we continue as a fellowship, the building is just a tool to continue the work our forefathers started inspired by the words of William Carey,


“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God”.


The church will be closed from 27th January 2014 and all activities will be in the church hall or the Olive Room. We are hoping to have an evening service on this Sunday, 27th January 2014 as we say goodbye to the past and look forward to the future
