“Beautifying the Space”

Outdoor Worship Area and Fire Pit – The work begins.

The “Beautifying the Space” initiative builds on the importance attached to the unique and tranquil area occupied by All Saints Anglican Church.
During 2020 the Labyrinth was completed with a custom made cross marking its place as a natural destination marker. The Garden of Gethsemeny comprises a series of standing stones set among four magnificent olive trees and overlooks the latest beautifying developments underway, the outdoor worship area and fire pit.

PHASE ONE – FIRE PIT

Estimated Completion Date: COMPLETED

Status: 100%

Breaking ground started with the firepit being the centrepiece for the outdoor events and ministry area.

Members of the ‘Beautifying the Space’ Ministry and the local Scouts group broke ground on the firepit on the 6th March 2020. This marked the start of an exciting outdoor adventure in bringing ministry into the beautiful grounds of All Saints. The firepit will be the centre piece for a covered stage area and audience seating for up to 100 people.

MAKING YOUR DONATION

28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, 30 saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’

We ask for your assistance and support in moving this project forward to its conclusion. Please use the reference “Outdoor Worship” as your reference when making donations. Your support is gratefully received.
