At the outset, I would re-emphasise that the purchase of a new building is more than just a new
location for Elpis – it is a fundamental step forward in the growth and future of Elpis. Thank you for
the giving and participation to date, but at this critical stage when we are so close to reaching the
finishing line, I would ask each and every one of you to get behind, or double your efforts towards,
the Building Fund initiative.

It is your (our) church, and we need each and every individual effort if we are to be successful – please do not wait to be asked and to borrow a quote from President John F. Kennedy

“ask not what Elpis can do for you, but what you can do for Elpis.”

The aim is to have purchased a new Church Building with several parking spaces in the next 10-12 months, and that looks like a realistic goal, but only with everybody’s individual giving, fund-raising and participation.

To make a quick start to our fund collection efforts, as described in the video, we are asking Elpisians during the course of April 2021-to sell a couple of items on eBay and also try to raise some money by a sponsored activity which involves doing something 113 times (be part of the '113 Club' and help us get to our £113K target). But you will also see in the video a Monday.Com questionnaire in which we are asking you to tell us and all Elpisians how you think you might be able, over the next 10-12 months to raise the sum of £1000 individually; if 113 Elpisians or families are able to do that, we will reach our target. So do please complete the questionnaire and get your fundraising underway. Time is of the essence

I have already circulated a sponsored template letter for you to use which can be found in the download section below – it is vital we make quick progress and visiting your neighbours and known contacts is a good start. By all means, ask for donations in your community, but please be aware of your personal safety, preferably going in pairs. Your well-being comes first – as important as the Building Fund is.

There are opportunities for you to get involved in all aspects of the Building search initiative-Finance, the property search, and collection initiatives, and if you are interested, Please contact us at and we can put you in touch with the relevant lead within the Building search team. In addition, we are very keen on hearing from any young people in Elpis aged between 16 and 21 who would like to join the Building Search management team- we have 2 roles and you would have an equal role and say alongside myself, Akos, Martin, Penny, Andy and Edward.

We need to harness the energy and creativity of the Elpis youth and we need young leaders who can form a Youth team. If you are interested, please ring the number given by Penny in the Video
