More recently we have been in contact with the council about any land available as part of the building of the new airport road (FARRRS). But have heard this week that they are only compulsory purchasing the land required to build the road and so there will not be any land available to buy or build on. The former local post office, that would be less than ideal but is vacant is being developed as further office space. And the area of land, empty and disused, owned by South Yorkshire Housing Association they want to hold on to and will not sell.
It leaves us with few places to go. We are very blessed in that we have a great working relationship with the school we hire, and there is no pressure from them for us to leave. However, due to building work at the school we have had to stop our coffee morning and are just meeting there on a Sunday morning. We are also limited as to what we can offer to serve and meet the community by not having our own building. We remain convinced that God is good and sovereign and that though his ways are not our ways he will build his kingdom. We are sure what he has in store for us is better than we can imagine even if we cannot see what that is yet. And so I'd ask you to pray with us and for us.
