Christ Church Eccleston - Building for the Future

As a church, we are engaged in the process of building for the future. This process is multi-faceted; the way we are growing as individuals, how we look outwards to the needs of the whole community, and quite literally as we maintain and improve our buildings.

Building for the Future

As far as this third aspect is concerned, we have made a good start. The generous donations received so far have enabled us to embark on this journey, but we do still have a long way to go with our fund raising.

For more information, and the latest news on this, please follow the link to the right.
