Life Church - Sale

Life Church internal

The project has involved the demolition of the original Church Building and Council owned Community Centre, and the construction of a new Church and Community Centre building managed by the Church and available for use by the local community.

Life Church, Manchester, searched for suitable alternative premises for a number of years, as their existing premises were too small and in need of extensive repair and refurbishment.

The Church formed a partnership with Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council to redevelop their existing site and adjacent land owned by the Local Council.  The project has involved the demolition of the original Church Building and Council owned Community Centre, and the construction of a new Church and Community Centre building managed by the Church and available for use by the local community.

Brief

Cafe - Life Church

To design a 400 seat Worship space with dedicated community centre spaces and café on the site of the original church building and council owned community centre.

Design

The site limitations and requirement to construct the equivalent Community Centre space at ground floor level necessitated the construction of a new Worship Space at first floor level. The space seats approximately 400 people with facility to open out into a large Hall alongside. At the ground floor the main entrance to the building includes a large community café, from which access can be gained to the dedicated Community Centre spaces.  There are also a range of meeting rooms and offices at first and second floor levels. The car park to the rear of the site extends beneath the new accommodation.
