Some history

The Hall Extension

 

By the late 1990s it was becoming clear that our facilities just no longer met the needs of our fellowship and expanding village community.  Where were mothers to change their babies?  How could the disabled get around without having to negotiate steps and a narrow corridor?  How could another kitchen refit meet today’s standards?  In addition the Sunday School and expanding Youth activities were in need of more space and another meeting room.

 

The extension nears completion (September 2004)

 

After much prayer and after examining several alternatives we finally went ahead in 2004 with the new facilities block, extending the Victorian Hall with a new kitchen with servery, new toilets including modern facilities for the disabled and changing space for babies, and an upper meeting room.

 

We received several generous gifts and grants, including ones from SITA Environmental Trust and Cherwell District Council; and a favourable loan from the Baptist Union Loan Fund.  A number of local fundraising initiatives were launched including the highly successful slide shows of 19th and 20th century life in Hook Norton, and the Historical Hook Norton calendar (now a collectors’ item!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labour in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”

 

Psalm 127:1 (NIV)

 

 

“Someone will say ’You have faith; I have deeds.’ Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.  You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that – and shudder.

 

James 2:18,19 (NIV)
