Completion date: Jan 2005
Contract value: £130,000
Gross internal floor area: 70 sq.m.

The existing church was built in the 1960's as a very utilitarian structure. This was subsequently added to in the 1980's with very little forethought about integration or future expansion. MSA were commissioned to rationalise the buildings, creating a unified central atrium space, a new kitchen which would serve and connect the two structures together and integrate the various activities taking place. This space provided an informal meeting space or hub from which user groups can move into other areas within the church without creating congestion.
