The brief for the provision of an ambitious new community church building for the established Dumfries Baptist Church was to: create a ‘home’; a centre where all are welcome; a base for serving local people and the church family; and a meeting place for local community groups.
Thus the building has been conceived as a flexible use community hub which comprises worship and conference facilities including full catering, youth facilities and a full specification games hall and Multi-Use Games Area.
A central full height ‘Avenue’ links all spaces, allowing light to flood the building, and cell rooms are provided over two storeys with significant flexible options for use of space. The build is intended to commence toward the end of 2016.
