Christ Church Renewed June 2016 Update

01.06.16 | Christ Church Renewed | Update | by Christ Church Surbiton Hill

    There is plenty of good news to report. The DAC (that is the Diocesan Advisory Committee who have to approve the plans) visited in April and met in May. They have reported that they are in favour of the basic principles of our design with just a few areas that they want to discuss further with us. This gives the architect a green light for drawing up detailed plans. At the same time, we can now get on and appoint a Quantity Surveyor and a Structural Engineer, hopefully in the next couple of weeks. The Quantity Surveyor will give us a clear indication of the cost of the project which will let us know our revised fundraising target. 

    We are very encouraged that with gifts and pledges we have raised so far.  As of 5th June 2016, we have raised £520,000. Clearly, there is still a long way to go - but we are making progress. Praise God!
