News and Events - December, 2010


Worship in the Parish House

The session of the Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green has selected Connolly and Hickey Historical Architects to begin construction work in the spring 2011 and to complete repairs to the sanctuary so we may return to uninterrupted usage later next year. During this winter season the firm will be in the sanctuary developing plans to engineer this work. After much thoughtful discussion and prayer, the session (with one abstention) unanimously requested the congregation meet in the Parish House throughout the duration of this project. The pros and cons and costs of putting up and taking down netting in the sanctuary to return this winter for a few months at $1000/per Sunday seemed excessive and counterproductive to good stewardship planning for the bigger repair project where funds are required. The sanctuary will not be available for use until the work is completed.

Buildings are living entities that, like our bodies, can require some major repairs periodically. It has been more than 25 years since the congregation has addressed major work on the structural integrity of the ceiling, trusses, and roof--an interrelated support system. The work we are undertaking furthers our vision to use the sanctuary for worship and ministry for many decades ahead.
