Enabling mission and Christian living
Dear Fellow Churches,
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5
Please join with us in our rejoicing. While I am not sure that we are meek all the time, at least we have inherited part of the earth! The land that we have been trying to buy for nearly a year, has finally become ours. With much help from the BU solicitors and the BU finance department, we are now the very happy owners of 1:1 acres of land.
As you can imagine there has been much rejoicing and thankfulness to God for keeping the land for us and for the BU and all that they have done in the last year while we have been seeking to build a new church building in order to see the gospel of Jesus go out into Durrington and all of Worthing.
I would also like to thank all the churches that have given towards our building fund, your gifts and messages of encouragement have truly blessed us.
We are now onto the next phase, planning permission, which is proving as difficult to achieve as buying the land! We have a great architect team in eleven10, who are a couple of godly men who have blessed us, cried (literally) with us and are on design number…. Well let’s just say that the council didn't like the first design, so we are having to redo them, and we have had a few attempts at guessing what the council want and like! The design is now based around the building looking like an angel of God coming and landing on the land and bringing the blessing of God.
We would very much covet your prayers, so that we can get planning permission buy this Autumn. Please pray that we and our church design will have grace and favour with Adur and Worthing Council, please pray for eleven10 architects as they finish off the design. The latest design looks like this.
If you feel able to give to us, please can you contact the Church Office on 01903 262313, or by email, for more details.
Thank you once again for your prayers, gifts and support. It’s great to be a part of the SEBA family.
