Kemble-Sarawak Worship and Congregational Meeting


The purpose of this meeting is to present the options and begin the discussion so we can move forward with the decision-making process regarding the new home for our church family.

We want everyone to hear comments and concerns from all the members of the congregation. The success of this event depends on your attendance and participation.

 

We will make a decision on this matter when the time is right to do so.


 SAVE THE DATE!

SHARE YOUR THINKING!

BE PART OF THE DECISION MAKING!


On May 31, we will be having a discussion about the future directions for our amalgamated congregation of Sarawak and Kemble United Churches. At that time, we will be looking in more depth at these four options (in no particular order):


One: No change to our existing situation: two church buildings, the one congregation alternating between them.


Two: The amalgamated congregation worshipping in the former Kemble United Church, and the former Sarawak United Church being sold, with the proceeds used to adapt the existing church building to be accessible and include meeting places, office space, and kitchen facilities.


Three: The amalgamated congregation worshipping in the former Sarawak United Church, and the former Kemble United Church being sold, with the proceeds used to adapt the existing church building to be accessible and include meeting places, office space, and kitchen facilities.


Four: New options, such as repurposing existing buildings, locating a new location for the amalgamated congregation, etc.


We will have available some of the work done by our Real Estate Committee, who has looked into some of the costs involved particularly with the second and third options. The intent is to get a clear direction so that we can get further detail and make a definite plan for the future
