On this page you will find the latest information about our proposals to extend and reorder the church.
We have submitted our plans for an extension on the North East corner of our church to Dacorum Borough Council. Our current facilities are inadequate for the 21st century and this extension will provide a modern and comfortable space which will benefit both the church and the community.
Associated with this (but not subject to Dacorum planning consent) are plans to reorder the inside of the church to create an open, flexible space suitable for modern church worship and for church and community events including concerts, fundraisers and festivals.
We have a precious heritage asset which we are committed to maintaining; the best way to achieve this is through a dedicated and growing church congregation and increased community use.
Here is a brochure describing the scheme and what it will achieve:
