New Building Bulletin No. 2

Psalm 118:22 – The stone which the builders rejected has become the Chief Corner Stone (Jesus)

Pastor's Piece

Praise God He is protecting the workers!

A builder cut through the mains electricity, but all is well and straightforward to fix too! The nature of building!

  • The ceiling will be completed this week.
  • Electrics starting next week.
  • Construction of the toilets are progressing well.

God bless.   Chris

We have yet to complete on the purchase and are working and praying through the final paperwork requirements.


Building Fund: kept open for ongoing necessary improvements and refurbishments. We are grateful for every donation, large or small

Deposit: large deposit is paid and we expect to complete in the next few weeks.

Refurbishment: We are currently waiting on quotes for the initial works.

A BIG thank you to all who have donated and are praying.

The next chapter is about to begin and we still have much work to do. Exciting times!

Financial Story

THE FINANCIAL REASONS WHY WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING

Staying in our current building means a monthly rent (including IVA Tax) from June 2019 of €4,840 pcm increasing by 5% per annum means that over the next 10 years we will have to pay €730,523 in Rent.

God is good and we are partnering with Him in this venture

WE HAVE A MORTGAGE OFFER

Our bank has offered 60% over a 12-year term. We had hoped for a 70% mortgage over 15 years so our initial estimate of needing €208,000 has now risen.

WHAT THIS MEANS?

 

Budget:

€480,000 to buy

+ €14,400 costs

+ €50,000 initial renovation

We will completely own our new building

…totalling €544,400, paid off in 12 years.

Kingdom Story

THE KINGDOM REASONS WHY WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING

The church is not a building made with bricks and concrete … it is of people united in Jesus Christ in the power of Holy Spirit building God’s kingdom.

Over one third of our congregation have become Christians in their later years proving that there is a harvest field among the Multi-national, English-speaking ex-pat community on the Costa Blanca South whom we serve.

Jesus said “The field is white unto harvest” (John 4:35) and TCF is well placed to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to a wide area surrounding Torrevieja.

A larger population from the key English-speaking areas can access the new building location quicker and easier than at present.
TCF will be a Strategic Bible Believing Evangelical Christian Centre for the whole region. We will impact the area with the Gospel.

We will completely own our new building

…totalling €544,400 in 12 years.

Final Countdown … The Last Hurdle

NEW BUILDING UPDATE!

To all the amazing and wonderful people of TCF and to all those associated with TCF we are excited because buying our own building is now within our grasp.
