  25. 25. St Peter’s RefurbishmentAs part of our vision for growth we want to have a building that is suitableto the 21st Century yet retains the characteristics of its original purpose.As many of you will know this takes a long time and we have been workingwith the Architect and Diocese to see what we can do to make the buildingmore attractive and more inviting for people.Once we get the final approval we hope to get the work done over the win-ter and it will take several months to complete.What we are planning to do, working from the outside in:1. Put window lights in the outside doors so that it feels friendlier and the porch isn’t so dark.2. Put oak fronts in the porch to cover the boilers.3. Replace the tatty blue doors with oak frame doors with windows in them – to encourage people to come in.4. General repaint and tidy up West End with notice boards all round the walls and new carpet.5. Improve the Church lighting with uplighters under the balcony and new light fittings and spotlights on the dais.6. Repaint the whole Church – end wall will be red to match the ceiling as it was in the past.7. Take out the raised side chapel and make a flat carpeted area which can be used for small worship events, prayer, Little Church.8. Re-carpet both side areas to match and continue the carpet across the front of the church, stopping at the front line of pews.9. Re-carpet and clear the pink carpet area, this may include taking out the pulpit so that the whole area can be used more effectively.10. Clean and re-plaster the two vestries and convert the doors to open outwards with crash bars for fire exits.11. Upstairs; recover the doors.12.

But this won’t cover everything. We will still be asking for contribu-tions from you to help make the Church a better place. We need help topay for the carpet, for the new chairs that will be needed in the side chapelarea, for the new Audio Visual equipment.Please consider whether you could make a one off donation, a regular gift,could raise funds or could write to possible donors. If you feel that youcould do any of these please speak to Lindsay (St Peter’s Treasurer) or An-drew or Gill as Churchwardens.But let’s together make our building somewhere we can be proud of andreflect the efforts of those who have gone before us and make it a buildingfit for today and the future.
