CHURCH REBUILDING UPDATE

Over the past few months, the Church Rebuilding Steering Committee (SC) has been deliberating with the appointed architect on how to improve on the proposed church building design. In consultation with the leadership from both the English and Chinese congregations, the SC has finally agreed on a final design, which also takes into consideration the feedback and suggestions put forward by some church members.

Moving forward, the SC and joint congregation leadership would like to invite all ministry leaders from both congregations for a dialogue session to confirm space requirements (and special needs) of the various ministries. After collating the inputs from the ministry leaders, the SC will further refine the design and present the final proposed building plan to the church members at a town-hall meeting scheduled in early November 2014.
