Your church. Your community. Connecting with God. Connecting with one another.

As Christians, we believe we are made to be in relationship with each other. A wry smile between wrung out mums. A toddler sharing the last of their Percy Pigs. A sister who's been through it before. A steady arm for Grandad.But churches can look threatening. Hostile. A hunk of judgemental brick. So we are renewing, rebuilding and inviting everyone into a new, approachable space. Somewhere to work, share, laugh. Meet people. Take classes. Deepen friendships. Somewhere that connects and contributes to our Parsons Green community. A living space. 

What is Living Space?

There is currently no other community centre in or around Parsons Green. The Living Space project intends to fix this. We will create more space within St Dionis (the church on Parsons Green) and welcome all members of the local community into the church. The improved facilities will help local associations and residents, and improve the life of those on Parsons Green and the surrounding area. We know there’s a clear need for it.

The Living Space project is led by the church with the help of a group of local businesses, schools and residents. Phase One of the work has already been completed. Our next phase will see improved facilities including a kitchen and beautiful new meeting spaces, plus a new entrance which faces the Green and tells Parsons Green that we are open! 

Our aim is to create more accessible space so people can meet with God and each other, learn, teach, develop new skills and enjoy a quiet oasis in our fast-paced city.

We are grateful for your support!

Living Space Project FAQ's

When does the build start?
Monday 4th February

How long will the build take?
32 weeks – hoping to complete in the Autumn.

Can we use the church on a Sunday?
For the foreseeable future – yes! (although it may look a little different!)
Our contractors have been incredibly accommodating and enabled us to continue to use some of the church building for at least the first stage of the project. We may be facing the other way, and we may at times have acoustic worship, but we will be able to use the space and run all three services (8.30am, 10.30am, 5pm).

What will happen with Youth/Kids/Creche?
Please be aware that although we are able to use the church building, sections will be boarded off as a construction site. Whilst in and around the church please ensure that your children are supervised at all times and adhere to the Health & Safety signage and out of bounds areas.

Youth & Kids groups at the 10.30am service will continue as normal.

The Creche will unfortunately not be able to stay in the main church building, however, parents are welcome to bring their babies along to the Safari group, in Zebedee Nursery School. 

We will be able to continue mid-week activities in the Church?
The church & church office/vestry will be completely out of bounds Mon – Fri (8am – 5pm) and some Saturdays (8am – 1pm), as it will be managed as a construction site by Caldera, but for the first stage of the project at least we will be able to use the building in the evenings. We will update you further if that changes. 

Will Lifegroups continue?
Absolutely, yes!

Funding/Costs?
We currently have enough funds to legitimately begin the project on February 4th; but we don’t yet have all the funds we need to complete it.
