ALSAGER UNITED REFORMED CHURCH RENEWAL PROGRAMME

 

A Consultation. Tell us what you think.

 

We would like to hear your views on a proposed programme of renewal for Alsager United Reformed Church

The Alsager United Reformed Church commenced its life of witness and service in the nineteenth century as the Alsager Congregational Church. In 1972 it became part of the United Reformed Church under a wider process of bringing together various non-conformist churches.

Members of the Alsager Congregational Church initially met in each other’s houses whilst funds for the new church building were raised. Our Victorian predecessors were eventually able to erect the present church building in Brookhouse Road in 1876.

Generations of Alsager folk have met and worshipped in the building and celebrated the major moments of their lives here.

However, a programme of renewal is now required if both the building and the Church itself are to continue to provide for the needs of witness to God and service to the community.

Before embarking on such a programme we would like to hear your views on our proposals.

Renewal for Alsager United Reformed Church

3A three phase programme of works to the fabric of the building is proposed;

 

  • Heating Upgrade
  • Roof Replacement
  • Sanctuary Enhancement

 

 

 

The gas boiler and heating controls have already been replaced by modern energy efficient models.

The main roof of the church building now requires replacement to keep it weatherproof for another century of service. The new roof would be fully insulated to reduce the church’s carbon emissions.

With the integrity of the building fabric ensured thoughts turn to the interior facilities. For example does the sanctuary facilitate the church’s vision and does the space provide a useful amenity for the local community.

The Church now has to decide whether it is called to spend large sums of money to ensure it is able to continue as a worship centre and community resource for future generations.

We would like to hear your views on Alsager URC’s proposed Renewal Programme.
