The superstructure for the new building has been erected, the floors have been poured with concrete and the frame prepared for the installation of the roof.
Creating Space to Transform Lives
The Transform Project is the response to the need for more space at Holy Trinity Church and we’re now half way through the delivery of the construction works. In the next year the family of HT will be returning. There will be a new four-storey building, new walkway, the church will have been refurbished and a new kitchen to cater for 200+ people will have been installed.
The project started on 4 July 2016 after eight years of careful planning, and while the works are being carried out the church is meeting in All Saints’ Church on Jesus Lane, and the rest of the programme is taking place in other central city locations.
There has been good progress over the last eight months; the groundworks were completed and the construction of the steel frame for the new four-storey extension is nearing completion.
The works inside the church are progressing well. The first stage of mechanical and electrical works have been carried out, with the cables and pipes under the floor, and the first layer of the substrate has been laid ahead of the underfloor heating being installed.
Once We've Returned
The Transform project is delivering facilities that will help the great work of the ministries at HT to continue grow. The main church will be bright and welcoming, with better access and flexibility. There will be a new entrance providing an attractive and clearly visible entrance into the Church, important when over a third of the church members are new each year. There will be good circulation routes, making it easy for people to move around and chat after services and events. The flexibility in the church will mean that everyone is able to be comfortable in the building, whether it’s for a service or an Alpha supper, a Pastorate gathering, or a Children’s social.
The extra space provided by Transform will make a huge difference to the work of the church and help to communicate the value we place in the worship of God and also the value that each person has.
After eight years of consultation, giving, planning, and now seven months of delivery we’re now very close to having realised the vision of Transform, that is ‘Creating Space to Transform Lives that change the world’.
The new building will be finished with stone and brick walling. Above, the bricks are examined before the samples are worked up.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support the project. The Transform Project is a story of the family of HT sacrificially giving time, resources, comfort and skills to make the continued growth of the Church possible. The Church family gave over 70% of the total £3.5million raised.
