On the home stretch

A lot of progress has been made this spring, and we are now in the home stretch for our new Beach United Church. Construction will be completed this summer, and we are planning to move the administration offices into the building in August.

The first worship service is scheduled for Sunday, September 8, 2013. Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate our new home!

Here are photos taken earlier this month. Let's take a tour of the building, starting at the front entrance on Wineva Avenue:

The southeast corner of the building now has large windows at ground level,
revealing the lounge area just inside the main entrance.
This view shows the lounge windows, looking out.
The administration area is next to the lounge area on the main level.
The multipurpose room on the main level will have an adjustable partition,
so it can be divided into two smaller meeting rooms when required.
At the west end of the main level is the new kitchen, with windows looking south.
The kitchen has been designed to accommodate community meal preparation,
professional catering and cooking classes for adults and children.
A staircase on the south side of the building leads to the upper level.
You will also be able to access this level with an elevator.
This shows the beautiful ceiling and new light fixtures in the assembly space
on the upper level. This space will be used for worship services, performances,
banquets and other large community gatherings
A closer look at one of the windows on the upper level.
The upper level also includes a meeting room (shown here),
a nursery and a servery.
Even the tiling in the washrooms is beautiful!
