New Church Plans:   We would like to be able to commence building works in the spring of 2018.   It is anticipated that this is the earliest date at which it would be possible to have all the preparation, planning and consents in place.  However this start date will also be dependent on funding being available.   The Project Team are approaching three architects to get their thoughts and ask for concept drawings, before one architect is chosen to take the project forward.
