Work finally starts on Monday, 15th February for 15 weeks at St. Martin’s to totally refurbish the church. We are very excited at the prospect of seeing St. Martin’s restored to make it one of Kirkby’s most beautiful modern spaces, as well as a functional community space for Southdene.
As well as necessary repairs, we will be decorating the church inside and out, restoring the windows, putting in a kitchen and toilets, and creating a new entrance, meeting room and cafe-style space.
While the work is happening, the church will be closed during the week, but we will still be meeting on Sundays for worship, although while a gas pipe is being moved, it might be a little chilly for a while!
When the work is done, we will be launching the refurbishment on Saturday 19th June, with a family fun event, welcoming the Right Reverend Richard Blackburn, Bishop of Warrington to re-open the building. Watch this space for details!
Questions of Faith is an opportunity to explore the big questions of life – the really big ones, that everyone thinks about, but often don’t get discussed. In a relaxed, friendly and welcoming environment, where no-one’s opinion is wrong, no question is too daft to ask, and where you absolutely won’t get preached at, come along to explore the really big questions that we all face – Questions of Faith.
Starting Sunday, 21st February, 2010, at 6:30pm at the Rectory, Old Hall Lane, Kirkby, or ring Tim Stratford on 0151 547 2155 for more information.
