GRACE EVANGELICAL BAPTIST CHURCH, LANCASTER

The flat roof of the church's chapel was damaged by the erection of scaffolding during building work on adjacent land. As a consequence, rain water penetrated the building and caused damage. Repairs to the existing roof did not seem wise and, as the church began to explore the various options open to them, it became clear that the cost of a sloping roof was not significantly higher than a flat one. In the providence of God the chapel now has a better roof that is much more durable than the previous one, and one that was paid for partly by the builders who caused the damage, partly by a grant from the Corporation, and partly by the generous giving of the Lord's people
