Building Redevelopment


At The Well, we love our city, and we love how God has provided us with a great church building as a home and a base from which to reach out and serve the city around us. We purchased it formally in March 2017, knowing that there are many potential improvements to consider if the building is to best serve us and God’s vision in the years to come. 

Now is the time to dream, talk and plan for this

As agreed at our last Church Family Meeting in November 2017, we have drawn together some options for layout changes and building enhancements.

After research, we appointed Gerry Roper of Smith & Roper Architects, who has worked on a number of church development schemes in Sheffield, to present a number of options. We’ve done some hard thinking with him already about what is genuinely feasible, as well as affordable. Now the initial ideas are ready for us all to consider.

We would love your feedback!

This is an important consultation time; nothing is set-in-stone at this point and we invite you to continue being a part of the process. You can download the plans below and also use the online form below to feedback your thoughts, questions, concerns and ideas.  Ian Prescott, who is a Well Trustee and works in the building industry, has volunteered to project manage the process of our church understanding our options, and selecting and implementing eventual building works.

Meet the Architects

On Sunday 4th Feb between 12.00 and 14.00, there was an open drop-in for people to meet Gerry and Ian to see the plans and share thoughts. regarding the plans and also feedback our thoughts. Following this, plans are displayed in church for a couple more weeks and available here so as many of us can get involved as possible.
