Some confusion has arisen regarding our Chapel building at Fole. The reason is, there has been a lot of confusion regarding the dairy site behind us, and what's to happen to it. The Cooperative who own and wish to develop the site, i.e., put between 80 to 100 houses on the site. If this goes ahead you can appreciate that the Chapel building as a place of worship may have a future. But the Coop has had problems getting planning permission for the development. Last year the Staffordshire Moorlands Council (Planners) turned down the Coop's plan. At the beginning of this year and until very recently the Coop had decided to go to the High Court in London of the issue. A short while ago we were told that that was shelved and they had decided to go back to the Council for a further attempt to get planning permission. As you can appreciate it takes time for information as to what's happening to filter down to me. So the present situation, as I write, is that in early June the Coop face the Planners again at Leek. The outcome of all this will, we feel sure, have an affect on what we decide to do with the Chapel building. We would of course like to think that there is a future for the Chapel, the Lord alone knows. But in the eight years there has been no interest shown by local people, half the houses in the village at the moment are lying empty. Maybe the development would give a decaying area a new lease of life. We are of course to faced with days of serious declension in the country, and we're not alone in the situation we find ourselves in, many Churches and Chapels are facing like circumstances. Even to get non-Christians into church is very difficult, but even Christians we find have no interest in serious biblical expositional ministry. So it's where we're at for now, early June may see a change, or perhaps even more wonderful, a move of God's Spirit in the locality bring a hunger and thirst once again for the gospel. We would ask you please to pray.
