- Firstly, because the building is in need of it, this is a building entrusted to us, a place where we are able to gather together, and we are stewards of it, therefore, we need to ensure it is well maintained, a large proportion of the works being undertaken is the maintenance of the building.
- The other reason links into the model shift the church is taking.We want to become a more fluid, acts like church, where the church is people gathered in community in small groups, encouraging growth in their faith, and impacting their community locally. Who then gather together to celebrate and to welcome guests!Why do we need the building then? Well…for guests! We have talked about environments as a way of viewing the journey we go on in church life. Our reception areas are where we host guests. When we host guests in our homes we make an effort. We want it to be warm and inviting, a place they feel welcome. Many of our guest environments, Sunday gatherings, CAP, Fuse and Kids Life all happen in the building, it is our main physical guest environment and we want it to say welcome, we care, and in some small way reflect the heart of those that makeup Revive Church, a family that cares and is warm and welcoming, also excellent in all that we do, because we work for the king.
