ORPINGTON METHODIST CHURCH
WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING? The church is a thriving centre for many activities and we want to build on this by developing the potential of the church buildings. We want to create a flexible space in the church and the opportunity to tell the story of our faith in exciting new ways.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? OMC is embarking on a four year redevelopment project.
We intend to turn the worship space by 90 degrees and open up the wall into the concourse, making this a more open and welcoming space that will be comfortable for community organisations to meet in smaller groups, but also accommodate a parade service of over two hundred worshippers! We will improve toilet facilities and coffee areas and make the church a prominent venue for exhibitions and concerts.
WHAT WILL THE CHURCH LOOK LIKE? These two images show our vision for change
WHAT WILL REDEVELOPMENT COST? We want to raise £900,000, half of which we trust can be found through applications to various grant-making bodies. This leaves us with the challenge of raising £450,000 from within the church and community. At the Church Council meeting in June 2017 it was reported that £507,200 had been raised in grants, gifts and pledges towards our target of £900k, so we are now over half way there.
