Project Description

The West Springs Free Methodist Church is part of the comprehensive 95-acre master plan, developed by S2 Architecture, in a unique collaboration that included a land-exchange with the existing church land for a new contemporary facility.

The church was designed as a hub to bring the Methodist community together for generations to come. In addition to Sunday services and other special religious occasions, the main building area is multi-purpose and can function as a flexible auditorium space for a range of different purposes. Supporting amenity spaces include classrooms, a nursery, kitchen, and administration offices. It is one of the first buildings constructed in West District and replaces an existing church structure that was at the end of its life-cycle.

The user group wanted to maintain a connection with the community and focus on family events, therefore special attention was given to the worship space that could also accommodate other events.
