Updates March 2019

Internal plans

Since reviewing all the feedback from our church-wide consultation in April 2018, the BftF team has been hard at work with our development partner, Green Pastures, to finalise the internal plans for the new building.

In February 2019, the Governing Elders approved the new internal plans which we were delighted to be able to show at the March Prayer Meeting.

You can view them here.

Please do take the time to view them while noting that all plans are still subject to final approval.

The key dates for your diary in 2019 are as follows:

Wednesday 3 April – Central Prayer Meeting – ‘Let’s Go’ Vision Evening
Wednesday 3 July – Central Prayer Meeting – Thanksgiving Evening
Sunday 7 July – Test Run Sunday (trying out the new venues)
Sunday 1 September – Relaunch in the new venues

Please to continue to pray for:

  • Our BftF team, especially Joe Ashton, Johnno Johnston and John Marland as they seek to finalise the development agreement before Easter and then appoint a contractor.
  • Ongoing discussions with potential venues regarding hosting our daytime congregations.
  • St Andrews Parish Church which has kindly agreed to host our evening congregation.
  • Us as a church. Pray that we would be patient and keep preaching the Gospel. Pray that as we move out, we would reach our new neighbours with the good news of Jesus. As we look forward to returning to a purpose-built venue for Gospel Ministry, pray that people of all ages and backgrounds would come to a saving faith in Christ.That in all we do, we do it for the Glory of God alone (1 Cor 10.31).

To aid us in our prayer, we have created a Dundonald Church profile on PrayerMate to help us to pray for BftF. Just download the app, and search for Dundonald Church under the following category: Church Life >UK Churches.
