New Home for Pastor

Thank you for those who attended June’s special church meeting at which it was decided to purchase Cierny chodnik 33, Vajnory, Bratislava 83107 as a home for a pastor. A €3000 deposit has been paid, we have until the 19th July to pay the balance, and if all goes well we should get the keys mid-August.

We will need to furnish the accommodation and if you have good quality second hand furniture, furnishings, cups, plates etc please have a word with Pete. We will also need a few gardening tools!

We will also be having a special gift weekend for those wishing to help with the purchase. The date will be announced. Any gifts, however small, will all help to offset some of the costs.

We hope that our pastor will be in the property by the end of August. To God be the glory, and may this property be used for His praise.
