St Mary's Church is planning to extend its busy church centre to accommodate a growing congregation and the need for an improved entrance.
The extension provides a shopfront for the church, a large multifunctional foyer and new kitchen and WC facilities.
The resulting external area is fully integrated with the foyer, ideal for after service gatherings and other church activities.
The project includes a carpark in what was historically a school playground. The landscape design by Askew Nelson involves removing fenced boundaries and connecting the parking area more fluidly with the surrounding water meadow.
The scheme has recently gained planning permission to the delight of the church, who are currently raising money for construction.
