The earth movers moved in to begin our large scale build of a new Auditorium here at Crossroads. It was an exciting day as this is the climax to many years in the planning. Work is progressing well and the outline of the new Auditorium is taking shape. We are thankful to the Lord that the weather has been very favourable, which has enabled the work to be constantly done each day.
The building is practically enclosed now. The carpark has been half completed and is in use already. The wiring is now being done. The building is progressing in Leaps and Bounds now.
The building is a long way down the track to completion. The painting has been started, the ceiling inside is almost complete and the sloping floor will begin to be erected shortly.
Inside the Auditorium the stage is nearing completion. The sloping floor has just begun to be put together. Many volunteers have given their time and done a fantastic job to assist with painting, putting in of batts and any jobs that have been required. Thank you to all of you.
The Sloping floor is just about completed and the builders will be finishing up their job here at the end of next week. The whole look of Crossroads has changed dramatically since Christmas 2011.
The building work in the Auditorium is now complete, the floors are being stained currently and the chairs will be arriving in a few weeks. The old auditorium is out of action now for church services and since the beginning of January the demolition work has been done to join everything together. There is an end in sight to the completion of the whole complex. In the meantime we meet as a church in the Gymnasium.
Sunday 7th April 2013
After 14 months of construction the day arrived when we as a congregation were able to hold the first service in the new Auditorium. The building was given a clean compliance and the construction was finished. It has been a fantastic year and the Lord has enabled the project to proceed with no major incidents or injury to any of the construction workers. We dedicate this building to God for His use and reiterate that it is More than Bricks and Mortar.
