BARNABAS CHURCH

Barnabas Church (Shrewsbury, Shropshire) by Contemporary, Modern and Conservation architects Baart Harries Newall (BHN architects) based in Shrewsbury.
Barnabas Church
BHN were invited to design an extension including remodelling of the existing church through a design competition. 

The main meeting hall is in a former Edwardian drill hall, beside the River Severn in Coleham.  The hall had been subdivided, and a single storey extension to the front provided some admin and social spaces.
 
The church wished to retain the hall, but open it up to seat a congregation  of around 800 people.  This in turn needs to be supported by expanded youth and social provision to provide the additional fellowship and support services that are intrinsic to the church.
 
The church also carried out an extensive outreach programme, with food bank, pregnancy advice, financial advice etc., and expanded offices were required for these functions.
 
In the final event, the church purchased a neighbouring office building to locate many of the charitable and admin functions shortly after BHN winning the design competition.
