New Build Resource Consent
We are very excited to announce that we have received resource consent from Wellington City Council for our New Build. We are very grateful for all the donations that have been made to date in order to make the New Build possible, and for your continued prayer support, which is essential. The consent includes the construction of the building on the Karori Road frontage (a two level structure with the top level being at road height), the demolition of the old parish hall and the repair and additions to the building it is attached to.
Receiving the resource consent is a significant milestone and enables us to move ahead onto the next stages of the project which include the detailed building design, grant applications and operational planning. Fundraising is still key for us to be able to put in place all that we now have consent for.
If you would like to know more details about our New Build Project you can head to the church website, www.karorianglican.org.nz or contact a member of the New Build Project Team (Ian Cook, Kate Harvey-Green and Geoffrey Lee).
KAC at Level 2
The vestry and KAC leaders have been consulted on behalf of the diocese regarding what and how we proceed to a national level 2. The diocese will then consider this information and communicate their decided guidelines to us in the very near future.
