FROM THE PASTOR’S HEART
Dear brothers and sisters,
Over the years many areas in our church building have seen much wear and tear through extensive usage. As such, the Local Church Executive Committee (LCEC) made the decision to commence repair and renovation work to those affected areas in the building. The works were supposed to start in April and will take about 4 months. But due to the Circuit Breaker we were unable to start work until recently.
Let me update you on the work done thus far. Also, to let you know what are some of the works scheduled in the coming months.
To begin with the timber flooring in the Living Room, Sanctuary and Dance Studio underwent a refurbishment. Areas that had cracks were repaired or replaced. Then the floorings were sanded down and a fresh coat of varnish applied.
Another major repair work was to arrest the problem of water seepage found at The Upper Room, YC Office, stairway landings, KYdZ Haven, Printing Room, the garden area on Level 5 and behind the Sanctuary. For this repair the workers drilled multiple holes in the walls and floors and pumped in waterproofing gels. By the time you read this note this part of the work would have been done already.
The next phase of the work will include repair and repainting of the basketball court. And replacement of a number of doors that are worn out. All these will take place in October.
Plans are underway to prepare for the eventual reopening of the church. I am hoping that when we are able to do so, all these works would have been completed.
Please keep this renovation work in your prayers.
