Projects - St Gabriel's Access Project (GAP)


One of our younger church members welcomes our oldest church member as for the first time he has a safe and easy access to his place of worship.

The congregation in the new entrance hallway.

Our new welcome area featuring a kitchen made from recycled floorboards salvaged from the building works.

We're getting there Praise God!!!
Final touches going in next week but it's looking good.

Friday 12th April 2019 - Update
The building work continues to move on....
and one thing that has moved is the Baptismal Font seen here in it's new position just inside the main Worship area. The partition (seen here in the photographs) has also moved forward to make way for the new stairwell and lift shaft.
Keep praying for our contractors at this time and for St Gabriel's still to be used for God's Glory during this time of upheaval.
'always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.' Ephesians 5 v 20

There's no going back now! In 4 days the stairs have gone to make room for internal stairs and a lift! Exciting times

1st April 2019 - The Work has started!!!!

Praise God - after many years of waiting prayerfully and faithfully believing it was God's will the work has started.


GAP - St. Gabriel's Access Project

We are currently in talks with the architects and the contractors and hope to see work commence early in 2019!!  

Update 2:
We are so thankful to God and the generous nature of people wanting to see His church become more accessible for people to join in the worship and praise of his amazing name!
Here is a small idea of how it has happened and how the money has came in/will be used:

Fun Run
Tax Recoverable
Penny Jar
Giving from Congregation
Fundraising Events
Project Costs
Allocated by Church
Fundraising Costs


St. Gabriel's Church and our friends have currently raised a whopping £69,080.64 with a further £10,000 promised and £500 pledged. We are so thankful for the generous hearts of people and the faithfulness of our compassionate and loving God!

The Plan:
Our project is to open up the facilities and activities within St. Gabriel's church building for all in the community and to enable new usages and users.
So, in the soon to be gutted main tower, a new staircase will access and join upstairs and down with a new lift (to upstairs and downstairs) giving entrance and welcome for all.
We add a hearing aid loop system and clearly visible projection.
A bus service to Church and a project worker (separately funded) will accompany the plan.
The cost? £155,000. The giving and pledges of Church members and friends has raised the first £50,000. We would love your help!

If you would like to find out more, please come along, find out more and join in!
If you wish to help us with the massive amount we need to raise, you can go to or even via your phone by texting "GABB86" with the amount you want to send, for example £5 to 70070. Don't worry though you can always use money and cheques, St. Gabriel's Church (GAP Project) still work too!
