BWCF needs your prayer

 

As many of you are aware, Borough Wide Churches Forum, Great Yarmouth Industrial Mission, Port Chaplaincy, and Mission to Seafarers are having to move as the premises from which we currently operate have been sold to developers. We can stay until the end of this month, and then we must find alternative accommodation. We have been preparing the Upper Room at Newtown Methodist Church for some time now, have had many quotes for making the room suitable, and are pursuing funding avenues; but……………. (and it’s a big BUT) we now find ourselves in a dilemma. The local Planning Officer has advised of major issues that MUST be addressed before occupation can be considered and, of course, this involves huge expenditure which we simply do not have

 
As I see it, there are two issues for prayer:
 

1.         Is this the right place? Does our Lord want us to continue down this avenue? If so, then we must pray for the funds to ‘appear’

 

2.         Are we intended to look elsewhere? If so, then we are asking all readers to think about whether they are aware of anywhere suitable for three desks, large photocopier/printer, bookshelves, and other storage space

 

Please pray these two issues and for our guidance and wisdom, and that we will follow the path that our Lord has intended for us

Given that people such as yourselves have a great deal of independence in the work they do (especially ministers) is it really necessary for BWCF and the Chaplaincies to have an office in any case? I will of course pray for your dilemma but if you have to seach for something else wouldn't it be wise before preparing an office or room to get a survey done first?

This does seem to be an unfortunate situation, and to some extent I would have to agree with Daniel. However, surely there must be enough churches in the town who can offer these people a room and help them in their unfortunate Predicament. Oh and yes, a survey would be a better option next time! you have my prayers folks.

I am fully aware of the above situation, but I do wonder how much notice BWCF,Great Yarmouth Industrial Mission, Port Chaplaincy, and Mission to Seafarers have before this point was reached? I take Robert's point that there must be a room or office available for you to use in a church somewhere - especially as BWCF works hard to represent the churches of this Borough.
