Upton Community Project

By way of background: The church, hall and facilities over the last 20 years has been amended and improved to better reflect the needs of the users and worshippers of the building.

These have involved access for the disabled, provision of facilities for the hard of hearing, changes to provide a flexible worship area and meeting place utilising chairs and carpeted area rather than pews, disabled toilet facilities, child/baby changing facilities.

We are pleased to announce that the latest phase to equip our premises further to meet modern expectations of the community and its people has been planned, researched, professionally drawn up and costed.
