Members are invited on a visit to tour the newly constructed Cirencester Baptist Church.
Built at a cost of £2,800,000 the project involved the creation of a new place of worship with various community support rooms and offices. The construction phase ran from December 2015 through to December 2016.
The project required the construction of a new Baptist Church following demolition of an existing building whilst retaining the foundations and slap to support the new building. Located on the entrance to a cul de sac serving residents and commercial stakeholders, the new building incorporates a large worship space suitable for congregations of up to 500 people with access to a commercial kitchen and cafe area. A second worship space was incorporated to host multi-function events including smaller services, meetings, community band groups and youth groups. A back hall was formed as an additional multipurpose space for use during Sunday school groups and during the week by youth groups. Ten further smaller spaces cater for Sunday school activities and general purposes such as writing painting and dance.
Constructed with steel frame, masonry and precast flooring, the building was designed to make best use of natural light. The specification includes a range of AV and sound systems within a secure control desk area.
The presentation / tour will be by Jonathan White, Senior Associate of the designers Roberts Limbrick, Thomas Jones, Construction Manager of the contractors E G Carter and Company Ltd and Matt Frost, Senior Pastor of the client Cirencester Baptist Church.
