The redevelopment of the former Upperton URC site with the new Emmanuel Church building has been designed to include a sanctuary, a galleried space capable of seating 250 people.
It also contains a large hall for social activities, café, meeting rooms and office space, and parking for more than thirty vehicles. It will provide a community facility for a wide variety of groups, including our own Jenny Wren Nursery (rated Outstanding by OFSTED) and Little Wrens toddler group, and fellowship for everyone. The premises will be energy efficient and have excellent access throughout, as befits a modern church and community space.
We hope to begin demolition in the first half of 2018 and move in to the completed church building, later in 2019. The existing Central and St Andrews sites are to be sold with planning permission to re-develop. The Greenfield Road site will also be sold after we move to the new building.
