Remove the existing pulpit, stairs, platform and railings and replace them with a new, larger platform with a rear wall. This wall will include a large flat-screen TV for display of hymn words, videos etc.
Reposition the existing audio-visual desk from the body of the Church up to the gallery at the rear of the Church. Improved lighting and sound systems will be incorporated.
Add glass doors inside the main front doors to form an internal porch, which will allow the existing front doors to be left open in inclement weather, and at the same time allow a clear and welcoming view into the Church during services. This will incorporate a ramp for disabled users.
The Elders propose that these alterations may be carried out in stages, to minimise disruption to services.
