Commitment to Pledge Funds: Improvements Planned for 16 Arnolds Mead

As discussed at the recent church meeting, we have been aware for some time of the limitations 16 Arnolds Mead places on our youth ministry. The intention is to build a single-storey extension to the rear which will provide a reception space and to relocate the kitchen to the front, providing space for activities such as cooking and eating together.  We intend to fund the works by using the money from the pledge day first and then the funds already set aside in the Designated Buildings Fund.  

After the pledge day, and in light of final cost estimates, we will bring a final proposal to the July Church Meeting.  If approved, we will communicate with donors giving details of when and how to fulfil the pledge, probably in September. 

We request that you give prayerful consideration to this appeal.  Once the work is completed, our capacity to deliver the gospel message through our Youth programme will be much improved.  The Pledge Day will be on Sunday 9th June.  Should you wish to pledge your financial support for this project, paper forms are now available to be posted in a box at the back of church, and an online form is available at corshambaptists.org/pledge.

PLEDGE DAY – 9 JUNE 2019

Commitment to Pledge Funds: Improvements Planned for 16 Arnolds Mead

As discussed at the recent church meeting, we have been aware for some time of the limitations 16 Arnolds Mead places on our youth ministry. The intention is to build a single-storey extension to the rear which will provide a reception space and to relocate the kitchen to the front, providing space for activities such as cooking and eating together.  We intend to fund the works by using the money from the pledge day first and then the funds already set aside in the Designated Buildings Fund.  

After the pledge day, and in light of final cost estimates, we will bring a final proposal to the July Church Meeting.  If approved, we will communicate with donors giving details of when and how to fulfil the pledge, probably in September. 

We request that you give prayerful consideration to this appeal.  Once the work is completed, our capacity to deliver the gospel message through our Youth programme will be much improved.  The Pledge Day will be on Sunday 9th June.  Should you wish to pledge your financial support for this project, paper forms will be made available to be posted in a box at the back of church, and an online form will be placed on the church website, which will go directly to the Treasurer. 

  • Pledge forms included in notice sheets – 2nd June
  • Pledge day – 9th June
  • Final deadline – 16th June

Any queries, please speak to Tim S or Roger H.
