It’s amazing just how fast a team of scaffolders can work! In the space of two days, the vast majority of the scaffolding in church has come down. The picture below is from yesterday evening, but already the church looks very different again.
As someone who’s had the privilege to ascend the scaffolding on many occasions to look at the angels and ponder, it’s been quite sad to see the scaffolding disappearing. It represents the end of a major phase of the project, and the conclusion of an amazing opportunity to spend time up there.
But it’s all hands on deck now, as we get the church ready for a very important memorial service on Saturday. That doesn’t mean the project is finished – far from it – but it does mean that we are getting close to being able to have our Sunday worship back in church. Alas, it will be a little while longer before the church is open to visitors again, but watch this space for updates.
