White Design have been appointed to assist Christchurch, Downend in the reordering of their church in Bristol.
'Christ Church should be a place for community, creativity and Christian Spirituality. In addition, there is a growing call to become more of a centre for training, equipping and resourcing the deanery / diocese following the ‘minister model’ of mission – one large central ‘hub’ which feeds smaller expressions of mission and ministry in the area. This would necessitate the church to have the capacity to host different types of gatherings from large events to small groups. It also needs enough space for community events, e.g. concerts, school productions etc.'
Last week we submitted our work to the DAC for approval, so watch this space!
