why are we doing this?
The Gateway Project is seeking a building that will enable God’s heart for Woking and it’s people to shine out. Woking is developing around us and we see this as enhancing our presence in the town centre.
Our priorities are:
Open up our building, whilst respecting and preserving the heritage building: make it more welcoming, attractive and relevant by creating visibility from outside through into the main church.
Extra space for outreach activities: More rooms (33% extra space) for conferences and events, a dedicated youth centre and crèche area.
Improve and expand our café and catering capability
Fix the essential (works that will have to be done regardless): Refurbish the interior decoration and toilets. Update heating, electrical and mechanical systems.
progress so far
We are holding a Public Exhibition to showcase our plans to develop Christ Church, we would like to hear your views on our proposed scheme. The team will be available to discuss the plan and answer any questions you may have
Public Exhibition will be located in the Nave at Christ Church on:
Thursday 25th October 2018 at 3pm - 8pm
Saturday 27th October 2018 at 11am - 3pm
When are we doing this?
After the Public Exhibition and consultations with Heritage bodies are complete we need to gain permission from the local authority and the Church of England. We aim to apply for planning permission later in 2018 and start construction beginning 2020.
We estimate that the total project costs will be in the range £5-6m with our current best estimate being £5.85m.
