‘Building for the Future’: our Restoration Project

Using Yesterday Today to build Tomorrow

We are undertaking a major Restoration Project at St. Andrew’s Church. We estimate that it will take approximately 5 years to complete, at a cost of £6.5 million.

The aim of the project is to transform the building so that it will become:

* A Heritage Centre: to explore the history of the church and the community of Enfield

* A venue for Entertainment: concerts, plays, organ recitals and much more

* A Community Hub: open 7 days a week for the local community to find a place to meet, rest, chat and enjoy space together

* A place for Worship: fit for the 21st-century, a creative place to worship God in comfort

The project began in 2020. Given that St. Andrew’s is a Grade-II* Listed Building, the planning stages for this innovative development are immensely complex and time-consuming. As the project develops, more information will be added to this page.
