IID worked closely with the church community to design a new building to replace the existing separate Hall and Church structures on different sites.


The new church centre is a single storey design of approximately 600m2 in floor area, set at ground level. It is wheelchair accessible throughout and benefits from a highly flexible arrangement, thus allowing a more sustainable, greater intensity of use to be delivered. Modern environmental performance and security standards are also key features.


The intention overall was to create a considerate, modern building that enhanced its setting and provided a significant and attractive local landmark as well as properly catering to the intended religious worship and community activities.
