WORK has started on a project to transform the community space at Highfield Trinity Methodist Church in Sheffield.
Once completed, the church’s community facilities in Holland Place, will be larger, warmer, and more accessible for events and activities for people of all ages and backgrounds.
The £195,000 project will create disabled-access toilet and more storage space. A more environmentally friendly heating system will also be installed.
The space available for community events will also be expanded, lighting and insulation will be improved, new windows fitted and electrics updated.
It is expected that the work will be complete by March 2013.
Funding for the work is coming from the Trusthouses Charitable Foundation and regional and local church trusts, as well as The Veolia Environmental Trust, which has awarded the church a grant of £28,800 through the Landfill Communities Fund.
