Ark Project Update – it’s happening!

Bristol Christian Fellowship and St Matthew’s have agreed to set up a Trust to develop and manage the Ark. The plan is that the Trust will be made up of representatives from St Matthew’s, BCF and perhaps some local people. The Trust will take ownership of the Ark. This is a very exciting development.

In order to work towards this, a steering group has been formed from members of BCF and St Matthew’s. Claire Davies, James Rimmer, Max Beseke, Vicky Wright, Simon Pugh-Jones and Mat Ineson are the St Matt’s representatives. The purpose of the steering group is to set out the vision for the Ark and the strategy for engaging with the local area, provide enough details to set up a trust and make application for trust to Charity Commission by end of Jan 2010. The starting point for the vision is :—

‘In light of our Christian principles and ethos, we seek to use the Ark as a vehicle to bring positive change/transformation to the local community.’

This is still under development and discussion which includes a community consultation, prayer meetings and conversations in both churches.

Future dates relating to these developments that you can get involved with include:

Please do pray for this project especially that we might continue to hear God’s voice clearly, keep talking and asking questions and do attend the events and get involved where you can.
