A legal notice appeared in the News Letter on April 29. It was to inform the public that May Street Church is applying for a renewal of its existing entertainments licence for Urban Soul Venue. If approved, this enables us to charge admission for events such as concerts or theatrical performances in the basement. It’s good to have it current, in case plans for events materialise all of a sudden. It also confirms that all our certification is compliant – fire risk survey, fire extinguishers, emergency lighting and our smoke/fire alarm. May Street sanctuary does not require an entertainments licence as it receives ecclesiastical exemption.
