Wycliffe Baptist Church - Reading

Church Architects UK

Phase I of the project for Wycliffe Baptist Church was the internal reordering of the grade II listed church building.

The acquisition of a warehouse building at the back of the church in 2000 added a fabulous resource to the existing suite of meeting rooms. The site buzzes with activity throughout the week and the Church is thriving.

Until the reordering was completed in 2009, in contrast to the rest of the rooms, the worship space itself was little used, severely constrained by the fixed pews, gloom and cold. The reordering has released the potential of the space which is now used extensively throughout the year.

Phase II, yet to be carried out, involves providing much needed circulation space and rearranging the rest of the church accommodation to better serve the needs of the Church.
