Dave Richards’ Visit – Sunday 17th September

As we continue to develop plans for the building and refurbishment project at St John’s we are delighted that Dave Richards will be joining us for the weekend 16/17th September and will be speaking at all three services on Sunday.

Since 1996 Dave has been Rector of St Paul’s and St George’s Church in Edinburgh, but many of you will know him from the past when he was at St John’s.  Initially he was a UCCF staff worker and then joined the staff team here as Parish Evangelist.  He trained for the ministry at Queen’s College and completed his curacy at Knowle Parish Church.

Shortly after he arrived at Ps & Gs he led a major building project.  Initial discussions began in 1999 and the project was completed in 2008 at cost of £6.73m, £2.5m more than the initial budget!  During the refurbishment period they moved out of the building for 2 ½ years.

Whilst we are not expecting to be dealing with such large figures, the sums involved will indeed be significant but we are excited to hear from Dave about their journey, their challenges and what God taught them during this period.  Dave is a gifted speaker and we look forward to what God will say to us through him.
