Plans to develop St Edwards, to update facilities in both church and hall, have been considered for a number of years.
Projects are growing and more space is needed, especially for the Play and Stay Toddler group and sports like Zumba.
Regulations and Risk Assessments for Covid -19 also mean that we need more space
We are now ready to take things forward.... the new heating system, secondary glazing, insulation and roofing work has been completed.
The second step is to add more toilets (including facilities for those with disabilities) and a proper kitchen. Once the church building is fit for community use we will upgrade the hall. We also continue to develop and expand the activities and services run at the church and hall.
Inevitably both the building improvements and running the projects cost money, so we are fundraising...
We are also grateful to the Co-op Community Fund and National Churches Trust who have awarded us funds to develop the building, the foodbank and the Community facilities in the Church.
We also have support from the London Community Fund, City Bridge Trust, Mottingham Big Local, National Lottery, Charities Aid Foundation, Direct Line and Rotary for the Foodbank and community services during Covid 19 and the lockdowns
