We are delighted to report the start of the building works for ramped access at Epping Methodist Church which will bring long-needed easy access for wheelchair users and those with reduced mobility. The scheme, which also feature green planting areas will offer the a more welcoming frontage and enhance the building as a venue for church based events and use by the local community.

Project Design and Build

The plans for the ramp and revised steps where drawn up by architect Mr Cliff Paten of Lewis Patten Associates. Mr Patten has a well established relationship with HAEBEA having worked with several of our churches on a variety of projects.

The building works which are expected to take approximately 6 weeks, are being carried out by a team led by Matthew Bayley of MJB Construction Services Ltd.

Project Cost

Expected costs for the project are £42,000 + VAT. Epping Methodist Church are meeting one third of the costs from church funds, with grants from HAEBEA and the Beds Herts and Essex Methodist District, together with private donations making up the balance.

Donations are welcome
