Updated August 2022 In early 2018, we asked engineers to inspect the building and give us a report on what we would have to do to strengthen the building to bring it up to Earthquake Strength of 67% of the building code, as the Diocese has told us we should be by 2024. Upon completing the inspection the engineers informed us that our building was only at 15% of the code.
In 2022 the council approached us looking for an assessment on the earthquake prone status of our building, we sent them the notice and subsequently we have been officially declared to have an earthquake prone building. This gives us until 4 July 2037 to rectify the instability of the building.
We are grateful for the use of our All Saints Centre, and the provision this is to us as we use it for Sunday services and all of our church events. We are in the process of getting advice and recommendations for the way forward, while praying as a community about how All Saints can continue to be a place of mission and worship.
We appreciate your prayers and support throughout this time.
