WE ARE MAKING ROOM

We have an incredible opportunity – the chance to shape the future of our community through the Wide Open Spaces initiative. By relocating Trio Coffee Shop, expanding into the main foyer and repurposing the existing space for childcare facilities we're not just creating physical spaces; we're building spaces of connection and hope.

But we can't do it alone. Your generosity has always been the cornerstone of our progress and now, as we embark on this exciting journey we need your support more than ever. Your financial contribution will help us turn vision into reality, transforming our spaces into places where relationships flourish, families thrive and lives are impacted.
On Sunday 29th September 2024, we will provide an opportunity for everyone to contribute to this exciting initiative.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHERE WILL TRIO BE LOCATED?

We are planning an exciting transformation to our foyer to create a wide open space featuring; Trio Coffee Shop, a new connection hub and doors leading to the rear of the building where we can enjoy an expansive patio area for connection, making better use of the area at the rear of our building. Bringing the coffee shop closer to the main auditorium creates a more natural flow for connection, where people can find the coffee shop with ease and enjoy refreshments before and after the services.

HOW WILL IT IMPACT GLOW KIDS??

Transforming the old Trio space into a wide open space for Glow Kids' Sunday activities to accommodate our growing Sunday services. With 56% increase of youth and children at Glow in the past year, we are committed to creating more space for our expanding kids ministry. A shared space with our nursery, this dedicated child friendly space enhances the experience for families at Glow and keeps the vision for supporting healthy & godly families at the forefront of our thinking.

HOW WILL WE EXPAND THE NURSERY?

To meet the ever-growing demand for places in our Little Cubs Day Nursery we’re creating more wide open spaces dedicated to providing more of the very best care, love, development and education for children and their families in our local community. With waiting lists at record levels, we are excited to create room for more children to be part of our outstanding childcare facility. This will be located in the current Trio space. When renovated this will be a shared space with Glow Kids using the space on Sundays.

WHEN WILL THE WORK START?

Currently, we are in the crucial planning phase. We are actively speaking with local planners and collaborating with Ofsted to ensure that our plans meet all regulatory requirements and standards. 

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

We are currently in the process of gathering estimates to determine the overall cost of the 'Wide Open Spaces' project. Our primary focus is to ensure that the project is as cost-effective as possible while still delivering our objectives.
