Demolition

You may have noticed that the building is only one third demolished. Why you might ask? It is because there may still be power to the block which needs to be removed prior to the completion of the job. Stay tuned for more information as it comes to hand.

TBC Update - 6 July 2017

Please find this week’s communication, we will also print a limited number available from the news stand at the entrance to TBC at Eternity :

  • Police have reported that investigations are ongoing as arson is the most likely cause of the fire to the TBC building;
  • The demolition will go ahead at some point in the near future, we will keep you informed as best we can;
  • The 2 containers will remain on site but moved away from the building and they will need some degree of emptying, there will be a working bee opportunity at some point in the near future for those who are able/available;
  • TBC bulletins will be emailed out / printed / uploaded to the 'TBCers' page once per fortnight for a time; and
  • The elders will continue to meet weekly for the immediate future, should you have anything to share with the elders, please contact one of us.

TBC Update - 29 June 2017

We believe that it's important to "communicate and connect", as a result, it's important that we keep you in the loop. We want to share several points with you:

  • We have not received the final report as to the cause of the fire;
  • The demolition could occur at any time during the month of July and we will do all that we can to communicate the date/time to you;
  • The Elders are planning to meet every week and we will have regular (probably monthly) information sessions after worship on Sundays.
Importantly, we will continue to meet for worship together at Eternity church in the foreseeable future, we ask you to continue to make this time a priority, especially as we seek God's plan for us as we face an exciting "rebuilding and strengthening" time. We are meeting at 2:00 pm in a well heated building and look forward to meeting with you.

We thank you for your continued support and kindness during this time.
The eldership of TBC.
