Now is the time
St Barnabas is the most committed, enthusiastic and faith-filled church I have ever experienced.
Thank you so much for your support. But now is the time to stretch our faith still further as we pursue an incredibly ambitious vision that has the potential to significantly impact the church in North London for a generation.
Go and Grow is a very large enterprise - the total project costs around £16.5 million. So far, provided all the deals go through and the pledges realised, we have raised nearly £12.5 million, including about £2.7 million from our own congregations. As a result, we are proceeding with Phase One of the project, which involves the fit out of the building so we can move in. To build the new auditorium and fulfil Phase Two, we will then need to raise the remaining £4 million.
We have already been on an amazing journey of faith and found that God has provided for us at every turn. We believe that this will continue to be the case.
This is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to invest in something of far-reaching effect. Please join with me in stepping out in faith beyond our comfort zones, in the assurance that God is at work amongst us.
