We have recently submitted our plans for St Luke’s Church in for planning. The reimagination plans of the church, is designed to help continue the community support work that the church already undertakes, will add a café and garden.
The Reverend Annie McCabe commented that they plans will ‘improve the visual appeal of the building to be inviting and accessible’. The plans will convert the existing church hall into a café, with a new porch structure added. The existing car park will be redeveloped as a flexible, community garden space.
The designs for the church will help to expand the community outreach projects the church is already involved in. Three years ago, the church launched a shared working space, coffee bar, meeting space with high-speed wifi, this redevelopment scheme looks to continue the positive progression of the work already started.
It was fabulous to see these redevelopment plans featuring in The News, the local newspaper for Portsmouth, with such positive community comments about the scheme. We hope to have a positive response from the council by the end of February 2023.
