ANNEXE UPDATE - August 2019
The background to our dreaming...
Wellspring is a living and worshipping church set within the whole Wirksworth community; hence our vision is to see our premises become a community building within which worship and prayer also take place.
To be an asset to the town community and to the church we aim to provide more gathering spaces of varying sizes, an enlarged, modern kitchen and a café space visible from the street. In particular, we wish to create an inviting entrance with good accessibility to all spaces.
Our small car-space behind the church has been identified as a suitable, though small, site into which a building can be positioned and connect on ground and first floor to the main (present) building. So our vision and hopes and dreams can be achieved by enlarging our premises and building an annexe.
(the others can be seen here - coming soon!).
The architect has been working on the plans and there is a model of the proposed annexe in the Wellspring building and there will be a link to the plans on this website soon. We want to 'get it right' and have been helped by feedback from those who are most likely to use the building once completed.
We have now got planning permission and we have successful grant applications (with others yet to come through) which we hope will enable us to reach the required total sum - in the region of £675000. Wellspring people themselves are raising funds - bit by bit....that's the way to reach the total, one mouthful at a time.
