The Storehouse Project

TheStorehouse Projection

Projection of the Barn & location on the site. 

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing

that there will not be room enough to store it. Malachi 3v10

How can I get involved with this exciting project? 

The first thing you can do is pray for the project. Secondly, make your local church aware of the project and spread the word to all your friends through social media and speaking with them about the project.

Maybe look at ways you or your church could do some fund raising by organising a sponsored event

or people can simply give a donation to the project.

 Remember, however small the amount, it will all helps us to achieve our overall target.

THE VISION

Although much has been achieved in developing the site the trustees continue to look at ways in which the site can be further developed, providing more facilities that will enable the site to be used more frequently throughout the year and not only in the summer months.

The project involves building a barn style construction that will be used for the storage of critical  site maintenance machinery but also as a meeting/sports hall. This would significantly enhance the site facilities allowing the site to be used more regularly. The desire and ultimate

goal is to enable more groups to  enjoy the tranquil situation and spend time away from the challenges of daily life.

 

We have worked with a local construction company who were instrumental in obtaining the planning permission. This was an answer to prayer as previous planning applications for the site have either been turned down or have previously involved a problematic and expensive process with no end result.

The ethos of the trust has been to provide the facilities at a minimum cost but sufficient to generate revenue to maintain the site to a high standard meeting all the required safety regulations and to provide a safe peaceful environment.

We are all too aware that for some families using the site is their only holiday, providing a time of spiritual refreshment for both parents, young people, and children.  This is so vital for many who often struggle with daily

life and the challenges it presents.

The Storehouse project is a joint collaboration between Misterton Christian Centre and

Yorkshire Christian Camp 

THE HISTORY

Misterton Christian Centre is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation which was registered in 2016 with the vision to provide a range of facilities that could be used by Christian camps

and Church groups.

Since taking ownership of the site, the trust have been blessed not only financially but also from people giving up their valuable time and energy in making the site what it is today. This is no doubt down to the goodness of God.

Following the original purchase of the site in 2001 significant improvements have been made to bring the site up to a level that provides good quality facilities and scope to accommodate different groups of all sizes.

The site is currently used by various Christian groups/organisations for weekend retreats, summer camps, holidays, and general Christian fellowship.

LONG TERM BENEFITS

The proposed building would be located towards the western perimeter of the main field that would provide a facility to seat around 300 - 350 people as well as doubling up as an indoor activity facility for when the weather isn’t suitable for outdoor activities.

It will also provide under cover storage for essential equipment used for the upkeep of the site and maintenance.

A key aspect of the vision behind the project is to enable the site to be used more frequently, providing low cost facilities and increasing

the use of the site for the benefit of

Christian groups and individuals.

PROJECT COST

The overall estimate for the project is:

£130,000 including vat which covers the following 5 key elements of the project, including a contingency for any increases in costs that occur during the time frame of the project. 

1. Planning & Building Design

2. Site Preparation & Footings

3. Steelwork & Cladding 

4. Concrete Base/Floor

5. Fitting Out & Utilities

There are 3 key cost stages involved with the project.

Stage 1 

Site Preparation & Footings:

£24,000 including vat

Stage 2

Steelwork & Cladding:

£66,000 including vat

Stage 3

Foundation Base:

£27,600 including vat 

Fitting Out & Utilities

The plan is for this work to be conducted alongside the main construction, working in collaboration with the construction company as we would look to undertake as much of this work amongst ourselves and volunteers to keep costs to a minimum.

Projected Fitting Out & Utility Cost: £6,600 including vat

PLEASE NOTE

Included in the total figure is £1650.00 for consultancy & planning fees & £4,250 for contingency purposes. 

The estimated project cost does not include a figure for water harvesting from the building to enhance our green credentials, which have estimated would be around £7,000 including vat.
