Beswick Church & Community Centre

Church gets centre stage in 'New East Manchester' regeneration project


Parish of the Good Shepherd and St Barnabas





Year Completed


As part of the New East Manchester regeneration project, we designed a new church and community centre in Beswick to replace three churches.  The building now provides flexible space for use by both the parish and local community.


Benefiting the local community was a major driving factor in this design, and the end user groups and stakeholders were consulted throughout. By proposing a smart, iconic local centre on an area of land that was previously unusable, it was intended that the physical outlook of the local area be updated and improved with a new worship space, multi-purpose hall, meeting rooms, offices and a cafe.
