In 2015, Sandylands Church and its community was struck by #stormdesmond. Our building was going to be out of action for at least 6 months and we needed to find a solution to continue to operate as a team with a base for staff and volunteers. Duncan Thornton came up an idea to place a port cabin on the church premies. The name ‘encouragement cabin’ was borrowed from Carlisle Vineyard Church. I designed an identifiable logo that could be noticed by all agencies and be the very thing the community needed – Encouragement and Courage!
