Project Team ‘Terms of Reference’ Building Project Team established to address four key areas: 1.To enlarge the worship space to allow growth whilst still remaining one church. 2.To re-imagine our space to do justice to the whole spectrum of activities i.e. preaching, music, arts, prayer, etc 3.To foster a more integral relationship between the different departments and the way they operate, e.g. between ministry, administration, youth 4.To open up the building so it is more visible and hospitable, more of a public space; for there to be a link between appearance and the message we give.
