St Aldates, Oxford, UK

Having been a place of worship for over 1000 years it had remained mostly unchanged since 1863. We carefully reordered the interior of the building to create a multipurpose space for all the church’s large gatherings including worship, conferences, dinners, concerts, drama, weddings, funerals, multimedia events, workshops and children's activities. The project included underfloor heating, new level floor, restored and enhanced decoration, new seating and relocatable platform, toilets, new AV and lighting.

Rev David MacInnes, Rector, St Aldates, Oxford
“(The project)… brought the congregation together rather than dividing it. When we came back into the building…we found the church was even better than we had expected.  The project had a great spiritual effect upon the congregation.  We are a family now… In the round.  We have a freedom… It is not a Sunday only building.  So, both in its spiritual impact and on our ministry it has been absolutely remarkable"
