Here at Arlington Baptist Church we had some good news this week, finally the specifications for works to renovate have gone out to the builders for quotes, these improvements seem to me even more important now in the face of Coronavirus.

Part of the plan is to create a community CATERING KITCHEN for ALL THE COMMUNITY TO USE in the schoolrooms, the plan is to provide a regular "meals on wheels” style delivery locally in partnership with the organisation "Cotswold Friends” who have already offered to help by training all volunteers willing, to obtain a food hygiene certificate, we will also be continuing with the popular pop up lunches where we get together for lunch and a chat also village events and celebrations can be catered for from this facility with the schoolrooms seating up to 60 people .

These building plans have taken three and a half years to get to the point we are at today but hopefully, when we can resume normal life, they will go ahead at speed, fundraising has started slowly but as soon as we know our target from the quotes we will be full steam ahead to complete the work.

We thank you Lord for the opportunity to serve one another. May we see you in them, and may they see you in us. Amen
