Creating churches for community use

How can you open up your church more effectively to the local community or make the building better fit for mission?

What are the practicalities of embarking on a community-led project? Large scale projects such as these can take years to complete and we advise that the first port of call is to discuss your ideas with our team, we can advise you on: next steps, fundraising, working with architects, planning, faculties, budgeting and more to assist you with your project.  We can also point you to others who have already completed a similar project. 

Here are some other useful resources.
