Meeting Community Needs
We have decided to demolish our existing Parish Church and Hall which have now had to be closed for health and safety reasons and to replace them with a new multi-use church and community centre. In the interim we have had to transfer services and activities to a local school.
The demolition and rebuilding commenced on 22 June 2020.
The new facilities comprise on the ground floor, a new enlarged worship space with good visibility and acoustically designed to be suitable for concert use, a coffee lounge, an Ofsted quality nursery, a purpose built youth area, a multi-use sports hall, a catering kitchen and an office.
The total cost for the project is £4.47m: we have already raised £3.52m and with this we will complete all external work and internally, the worship space, parish office and plant room (Phase 1). We therefore need a further £950k to complete all the remaining facilities which are primarily for the benefit of the local community (Phase 2).
