Winners Chapel Birmingham
As church building contractors, it was no surprise when earlier this year we received a phone call from a representative acting on behalf of Winners Chapel, a Christian denomination founded by Bishop David Oyedepo in 1983. The organisation is a global network of churches with congregations in 65 countries, and they had big ideas for a new church in Birmingham.
The proposal was to take a disused factory unit in Birmingham, turning it into a significant place of worship, celebration and teaching with a seating capacity for the main congregation of 600 plus.
The building itself provided a vast space that allows the imagination to run wild with possibilities; it’s not quite as big as the halls at the NEC, but with over 2000 square meters to play with, you get a real sense of just how big this place of worship will be.
Having so much space presents its challenges, and after considerable deliberation, the design committee proposed splitting the space into five main self-contained areas that would include:
five children’s churches with childrens reception
- a teen church
- office space & storage
- a large foyer in which to welcome the congregation
- main hall
- Children’s church
Add to this a mezzanine floor over certain sections creating even more usable space, and you have a building that’s been well thought out, future-proofed and provides a fantastic area for many years to come.With the main hall holding over 600 people, this new house of worship will certailny be making its mark in Birmingham.
We’ve been working with Winners Chapel for a little time now, and are very excited to finally get the go-ahead on what will be a challenging, but gratifying project.
