CURRENT FACILITIES


Currently the building does have a kitchen, this is very small and is unable to provide any catering facilities. The current size is only able to provide refreshments and is located in an awkward part of the church restricting its access to the main worship space. We have identified this as one of the things which we feel hinder our mission. 
 

PROJECT DETAILS 


A new kitchen can be created in the corner of the worship space (see diagram below). The creation of a new kitchen here would not hinder future building development phases and therefore would be a meaningful first phase, and work which would not need to be undone at a later date. 


New Kitchen


COST


It is estimated that the total cost of the kitchen would be in the region of £75,000, including fees.  While we hope to secure some grant funding towards this, it is likely that the majority of the cost will need to be met by voluntary giving

This cost is for a kitchen which could be used to serve refreshments and reheat food and prepare basic meals. This would include the removal, stripping out of the church floor, the creation of connections to the existing drains, laying the new floor, creating the new timber structure with a ceiling, new solid timber fire door and fire rated serving shutter. This would also provision of new kitchen units and worktops, new sink and the services such as water and power, which the space would need.
