ALL the pews removed from Christ Church in Downend for the Building 4 Life project have been sold.

Project co-ordinator Maggie Nicholls said the pews were treasured by many as part of the history and fabric of the church and had been snapped up by people from all over Downend, raising £2,500.

At the last service at Christ Church before the building project started, everyone was encouraged to pray by writing graffiti prayers in chalk on the walls. These prayers have blessed Hart Construction as they started the build. 

They are all now shared on the Christ Church Downend Facebook page, along with photos of the project as it progresses week by week.
