Since taking on the tenancy of Hey Street Evangelical Church back in September 2021, One Church Grimsby have transformed the building making it more fit and welcoming for Gospel use. The building formerly only had toilets that were accessed externally, an asbestos concrete sheeted roof in poor condition, and a façade that did not present an open and welcoming presence to the street. Internally the décor was dated and the fixtures and fitting were generally in need of upgrading.
With an amazing work ethic and attention to detail Wendy and Tom Hawkins and their Team at One Church have overseen extensive renovations including the safe removal and replacement of the old asbestos roof with a new metal sheeted roof finish, the reconfiguration of the toilets to form an internally accessed toilet that is fully compliant with the current building regulations and an extensive programme of internal and external decorations that now give the building a striking presence within the surrounding area.
In addition to all of the works to bring a new lease of life to the building, One Church have also commenced extensive community outreach activities using the building effectively as a base for their Gospel outreach in the local community. We trust and pray that the building will be an excellent setting for their ministry and that all of the building work will strengthen their presence and help to bring new people in to worship and into the Kingdom.
