The construction work of the Church Building has reached another milestone by achieving it’s present structural form.  The frame of the church building has emerged into its architectural design with the complete setting of the structure in terms of beams, columns, floors etc.

Another stride in its progress is the recent installation of some roof trusses and the first section of walling with bricks has started at the main entrance of the church building on the 12th September 2014.

Screened scaffolding has been erected around the building structure for resumption of construction works which in itself gives a promising picture of the soon completion of the construction works.

Once the roof trusses are set in place, the roofing part of the work will be started and at the same time, the walling process will continue.

The remaining work entails the interiors, furniture, painting, plumbing, sound systems and electrical fittings which can be started once the walling and roofing works are completed and of course the steady flow of funds and fervent prayers.

The progress of the construction work is roughly 60% of the total target set for its completion.

The central iron roof trusses have been set in place and work is progressing for the remaining trusses. The clamps are being prepared accordingly. The approximate weight of each roof truss including the iron ridge boards is 1200 kilograms.
