The new hall complex is almost ready for handover. Someone from Glasgow City Council Building Control will come on Friday to give it the ok (or not?), and then we'll get permission to move in. The Bishop of Glasgow & Galloway came for a look round last Wednesday. I think he liked it (he used the word "gobsmacked"!) and is looking forward to giving it a right good blessing. I am immensely humbled that we have been given such a useful and attractive facility - I hope we use it well and to the Glory of God.
Now all we need to get ready for is the tidying up of the church, the decluttering of all the unnecessary stuff we've accrued over the years, the building and moving of furniture and all the technical things we'll need to sort out (like IT and audiovisual equipment).
The weekend of the 20th February, we'll spend a lot of time praying in the new building and getting it practically kitted out in preparation for the School of Ministry we are running on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 22nd February. More of all that in another post.
