Blueprint for the future

We are delighted to be able to share the latest version of the plans for the redevelopment of Chowdene Chapel. Planning permission for these works was approved in February 2022. The scheme has been modified since to give us the opportunity to get started on Phase 1 quickly and within the limits of our funds.

Work commenced in early January 2023; it is well underway and we expect to complete in early June.

If you wish to invest in the project we are now able to take gifts at church securely using any debit or credit card via a Sumup chip and pin machine.

Alternatively if you wish to talk to the leadership team about donations to the building project please feel free to catch one of them in church or email

And if you feel able, you can give electronically. If you are a taxpayer, giving regularly can also add 25% from HMRC via Gift Aid.

See our giving page for details.

These plans are designed to secure our long term presence in heart of the the community by:

  • Re-Establishing – Our place in the Community
