Referring back to the early analogy about the seasons, with the better weather and the promise of summer and fruitfulness come the closing stages of the transformation of the church.
This month has seen the completion of the lighting, re-plastering and decorations so that the main scaffolding structure has come down. The space is beginning to look like a nave again!
Outside, there has been excellent bricklaying to create the housing for the platform lift and the edges of the new pathways.
Meanwhile inside, once the scaffolding was dismantled the heating engineers could get to work on the underfloor heating.
On top of the pipework, a cement screed – which involved two deliveries of 20 tonnes of the mix, more hard work and precise positioning to create a smooth level base for the next and final layer … the limestone floor which arrives in the first week of June.
As we begin to worship here again in the very near future, take a moment to remember and appreciate what lies beneath.
