In order to address the parish priorities, working parties are formed with the task of completing projects. These are the current active working parties.
Consecrate the Church
Church was opened and blessed by has never been
consecrated, possibly because the custom was to wait until
the building was paid for and the Parish was "debt-free"
which we believe it is now. The floor is not solid, and
there is no concrete plinth that would support a solid
altar. It is believed that there is asbestos in the floor
tiles, and therefore replacing them which is needed was
always put on the back burner. We will start to progress
this by assessing the work that needs to be done; finding
out from the Archbishop what need to have completed in
order to have the Church consecrated; obtain estimates for
the floor; and assess the financial implications.
Progress so far: A committee is now formed to progress
this project and is actively planning for a new permanent
sanctuary. During the Autumn of 2012, we engaged in a
period of experimentation to try out ideas on the design of
the Church sanctuary.
