We are delighted to share the news that Merton Council’s Planning Applications
Committee approved our planning application at their meeting in October.
Thank you to all those who supported our planning application and sent in their representations to the Council as part of the public consultation. As you may know, we had hoped that our application would be considered some months ago but we have now received the planning approval and can move into the next phase of the project.
We will provide a more detailed update when we have further clarity on next steps but we wanted to share the news with you as soon as we could! In the meantime, there are a number of things we’d like to ask you to pray about over the coming weeks:
- Please thank God for the approval from the Council’s Planning Applications Committee for our building plans.
- Please pray for clarity over the next steps in the building project, particularly for those meeting with potential development partners, and for wise decisions that best serve the gospel and the church
- Please pray that we are able to secure the additional funding needed
- Please pray that we continue to be good neighbours in reviewing how we travel to church and in being considerate in where we park if we drive
For updates on the project please see the project page.
Thank you for your ongoing support to this project.
