Church Building

Our church building has a central worship area which can seat 120 people. The seating is individual upholstered chairs which, when stacked, allow the main body of the church to be used for other activities and enable it to be hired out during the week. Adjoining the worship area is a separate space with folding doors which, when opened, can be used to enlarge the worship area for special occasions.

There is a Chapel above the narthex at the rear of the worship area. This has sliding glass window panels, which enable it to be used as a gallery for musicians, overspill congregation or for taking photographs of weddings or other special events. It is reached by a wrought-iron spiral staircase.

The worship area has a sound system with high level loudspeakers and a hearing loop. The sound can be relayed to a speaker in the Oasis Room.

The stone altar beneath the east window is made from a piece of South African granite weighing 1.3 tonnes. There is an aumbry for the reserved sacrament.

The church has a Maikin Organ – Johanus Opus 10 electronic organ and also a piano. Outside is a Bell Tower which is used to announce services.

Around the walls there is a set of 15 small ceramic Stations of the Cross. The font is a portable wooden font with a copper bowl. There is a votive candle stand on which people can place lighted candles to offer prayer for a particular purpose.

The Sacristy has a vestment press with a set of 5 seasonally coloured vestments.

Since the current building was consecrated in 1993 a number of alterations and improvements have been made. These include: refitting the meeting room (now known as the “Oasis Room”) with cupboards to house the photocopier and choir robes, and the addition of curtains and easy chairs.

New cupboards and drawer units have been installed in the Sacristy. The kitchen has been re-fitted and the hot water and central heating systems have been renewed. The wooden cross on the front of the exterior of the building was added in November 2012.
