In times of transition we become flexible and mobile, or we become irrelevant. As we lose the centre ground we need a spirituality for exile and for the margins.
in an age of transition, in a world of uncertainty A tale of two buildings
ST PAUL’S HOUSE THE STORY SO FAR
Who owns the building? • Layout • History • Current lease 2. Present Agreement . Length of lease . Financial implications . Car park 3. What have we gained so far? . Shop front . Accessibility . Manageable space . Better rental space
4. What are the weak points of the venue? • Kitchen and loo provision • Storage 5. Is there a plan?! . at present we are exploring how we would go about buying the building . we may well be able to lease it . we must face the possibility of losing it.
What is God saying? I THINK • We should keep hold of this place for as long as possible (regardless of what happens over the road) • We need a clear vision: What is this place: outreach Centre/ worship centre/ community centre? Or all three? 3. Be courageous. Be whole-hearted
