Renovated mezzanine will extend church capacity

Posted by Trevor

Exciting new plans for an extensive refurbishment project at a church in Peterborough, including major work on the  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level, are waiting for final approval from Fenland District Council building regulators.

The first stage of the renovation is estimated to cost around £180,000, of which the congregation of Whittlesey Christian Church have already raised over £100,000. It is anticipated that work will commence by the end of October.

The historic building in Broad Street was purchased in 1996, and has been in the process of being upgraded for several years. The latest plans include the construction of a new floor in the main building and a covered corridor between the church and the hall at the rear, which will result in space to accommodate around 180 people.

The mezzanine flooring level will be refitted as office space, which will allow the present offices to be used as rooms for a number of different community groups and projects. The church has attractive bow windows at the front and the outside appearance will be unaffected by the work, which will increase the capacity without damaging the exterior façade. The second phase of the renovation is expected to cost £1.25m and will see a new church constructed behind the original building, further extending the capacity and use to which the church and associated buildings can be put.

Pastor Brian Smithyson told Peterborough News that church services and the various activities which presently take place will continue as usual, despite the difficulties posed by the remodelling work.
