Temporary closure of church building

Excerpted from an email from Chris:

A small group had to make a decision today to “close” the church, following receipt of the PCANZ’s Policy on Earthquake Prone Church Buildings.

Sunday’s service will be held at Beckenham Methodist Church at 10.00 am. For more information please ring or e-mail Anna. She will work in the office until Friday and Parish activities will continue in the lounge until Friday.

By Sunday we hope to be able to give more information regarding venues for Sunday worship and weekday activities.

Depending on the final report from the engineers, it may be necessary to call a special meeting of the Board and Session on Wednesday evening 15th August.

At present it is day by day. Hopefully we can reassure people that our shared life will go on regardless of buildings.
