Peter Green: November 2018
Following Sunday's morning service, an Extraordinary Church Council meeting gave unanimous approval for the church to sign the contract with Jet Construction of Milton Keynes to undertake our Church Welcome Project. Although the cost of the project is more than the estimated budget figure the money required from the church is less. This is due to generous grants from the Methodist Church, WREN and Allchurches Trust.
Work is now due to begin on 7th January and be completed before Easter. It will include improved disabled access, a new folding glass screen between the church and welcome area and a refitted kitchen. The aim is 'to provide the rapidly growing Aylesbury town centre with an attractive, accessible, meeting place, able to offer a warm welcome, simple refreshment and a listening ear.'

The style of Borg's writing is scholarly, logical and assessible, which made it easy...
