Building Work 2015

The work is to add a kitchenette at the back of the church, with accessible toilets too.

The finished work pictures are right at the bottom of the page...

The first three photos show the area before work started.


The rest of the photos show the work as it progresses - starting with three photos from 5th March 2015 showing the framework of the new rooms beginning to take shape.

The photos from 21st March show the plastering is complete. But there seems to be quite a draught under the front door...

The next stage wasn't very photogenic but will be very necessary - it's the drains! Pictures here from inside and outside.

It was a lot of work, but it will make a big difference to some who come to St Barnabas - there is now a step-free way into the building!

Here's the bit we've all been waiting for - the finished result!

These pictures from 3rd May 2015 show how the facilities are properly accessible and fully usable. Our church now meets the needs of the congregation and the community.
