To date the church has spent over £50,000 on this work including the cost of turning substantial sections of the basement into modern offices. We devote a substantial proportion of our limited income to running the total facility. In addition, a number of our members work actively with these mission groups, and provide not only help with particular projects but also collaborative input to administrative and managerial matters. We are determined to support more charities who are now asking for our help. This will involve converting more space within the church premises, and potentially also elsewhere in York. Our charities need more working space for counselling, communication and  training as well as for basic administration. We also intend to provide management support to assist the charities in their work, especially in relation to publicity, fund-raising and administration. These redevelopments are likely to cost at least £300,000 in capital expenditure and £75,000 per annum in running costs.
