Decision items for consideration

The Deacons recommend to the gathered church that we:
  1. Consider approving the placement of carpet in the sanctuary
    (in light of a recent contribution of funds to cover this cost)
  2. Consider painting the main sanctuary while the church is not meeting regularly
    (which is a change from a previous decision to paint the entry first and then assess the colour scheme) 
  1. Consider the cost of hiring a decorator to treat and paint the entry(due to there being lots of wood, with varnish, and angles; and high ceilings)
  1. Appoint a small group from among the membership, to pray and seek the Lord,
    for the right colour/shade of paints and carpet in the sanctuary,
    (in keeping with any directions from the church meeting).
  1. Agree not to rush to open for public worship immediately,
    But to wait until acceptable safety measures are in place, and all agreed repairs and improvements are complete.
  2. That the gathered church direct the Deacons to use the time needed to complete any agreed repairs,
    to research, outline and implement policies and procedures
    that need to be in place before we can safely open for public worship,
    (in keeping with the advice of the Scottish Government and the best practices of other Christian churches).
    So that any policies and procedures are ready to be implemented, by the time any approved repairs are complete.
