One of the first things I wrote when I got here was that the “Sign above the door” needed to change. I was referring to the invisible sign that everyone on the outside sees, but also the physical signs needed to be change. It took 2 years and the signs have changed. Both in the internal sense, a church that was already welcoming and outward looking is now even more active and alive. But also physically, the signage has now been transformed to reflect who we are and it communicates clearly the welcome of God to all people.
As mentioned before the summer, the PCC have underwritten the cost of the new signs (£2500) because we believe it was strategically important for us to change the external signs. However if you would like to contribute to the costs then please give in the usual way (Joy Box, Envelopes, Standing order) but clearly mark your gift “signs”. Thank you so much for all you are doing in advancing the work of Jesus in Torquay.
