Ark Development Steering Group Update

It has been a busy month. Under Vicky’s leadership, 1300 community consultation questionnaires were delivered and we had an amazing response of just under 300 completed questionnaires. These have been collated and a final summary report will be published in the New Year. The results are very positive and very much in line with the thinking of the steering group. In parallel with this a team has been exploring the Vision for the project and the legal and financial implications of embarking on it.

By the end of January we hope to have put an application in to the Charity Commission to set up a Trust that will be managed by Trustees from St Matthew’s, BCF and maybe some others. This Trust will be a separate body to both churches.

Please do continue to pray for this project and if you want to know more or make a comment do contact the St Matthew’s reps on the Steering Group.
