Changes to church buildings can offer greater flexibility of worship, or help improve the facilities and welcome a church can give to worshippers and visitors.
Many church congregations are thinking about the changes they can make to their church buildings. But where to begin?
On this page you will find lots of case studies and an introductory booklet to give you all the information you need to get started, as well as inspire and encourage you and your church as to what might be possible.
From tea/coffee making facilities and toilets; to glass doors that invite people to come in; major reordering works inside a church and even extensions, the case studies highlight a wide range of projects carried out in the Dioceses of Rochester and Canterbury.
