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.
By 14th March 2015 the outside walls looked almost complete.
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.
A week after Easter and all the construction work is complete and the woodwork has had its final coat of varnish
New floor to ceiling cupboards now in the Hall enable us to keep the Church tidy
This is exciting - the new kitchen is in place
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!
In the second picture, the view shows the new servery on the right and in the distance is the Lady Chapel altar
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.
