The Bethnal Green Redevelopment Group and Circuit Meeting have reviewed plans for the redevelopment of the church building and have decided that because of an increased cost of over £3m and a protracted timescale, now is not the time to undertake a major physical redevelopment of the church.  Instead we are exploring ways to undertake urgent repairs so that activities can begin to return to the building, in a phased way, as soon as possible.

Inspired by Jesus, we are putting our energy into seeing how we can better resource and develop our work of offering a welcome and hope for all, serving our neighbours and building communities of love at the heart of Bethnal Green.  It’s too soon to give firm commitments about when specific activities can resume but watch this space!  We have a sense of God’s presence and guidance and dare to believe that through the journey we’ve been on, many good things will happen.  If you have any thoughts or ideas or want to be involved, do let us know.

In the words of John Wesley – The Best is yet to come!
