The construction

Our architects, Jay Ashall Partnership, have created a design to provide for a stylish and welcoming new entrance. Through the entrance we find on the left a large open plan community hall open to the striking roof timbers. The spacious new kitchen is off the main hall towards the rear of the building.

From the main hall there are moveable partitions which may be placed around the central altar space. From the entrance if we head the other way we will pass four new toilets and stairs to the church office and a meeting room. Past the stairs we find a new worship space which opens into the rear church garden.

Our builders, JMC Building & Civil Contractors Ltd, have done a great job - thanks everyone!

Next steps

We still need new windows in the main hall. The old windows date back to the original building and are draughty and obscure.
We are seeking funding for new windows.
