when are we doing this?
The Christ Church building we recognise today was built between 1885 and 1909 and has been evolving ever since to meet the needs of a growing town and congregation. The significant redevelopment in 1990 allowed the church to reach out to a wider range of people and host activities seven days a week. These current proposals support the next phase of the life and growth of Christ Church
The building is Grade II listed and is one of only two listed structures in Woking. It has a very special character and prominence at the heart of the town centre. These proposals respect the heritage of the building and respond to its character, with a contemporary architecture which we hope will secure the future of the building in serving the local communities for many years to come.
Progress up date
The Gateway team is making great progress. It’s taken a time to discern the way ahead, keeping God at the centre of all we do. It feels like the current expansion of Woking is an encouragement that this the the right time to move ahead
