Updated December 2019 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. We had previously been informed by the council that we were at 34% - the minimum we needed to be at to be safe to occupy.
We are grateful for the use of our All Saints Centre, and the provision this has been to us in the last 18 months, using it for Sunday services and all of our church events. We are in the process of getting advice and recommendations for the way forwards, 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.
