Restoring a historic church building can be a major undertaking, and oftentimes, congregations end up putting the process off for longer than is beneficial. When in discussions as to whether your church restoration project should move ahead or not, consider the following three items.
If your space isn’t collaborative, you should consider a church restoration project.
A primary purpose in any congregation is fellowship. As such, church spaces need to be designed in such a way that encourages an ease of fellowship, not one that inhibits it. Well-thought-out architectural spaces can help move people into conversation and community more organically.
If your space is worn down, you should consider a church restoration project.
Are there cracks in your foundation? Did a leaky ceiling cause water damage to part of your sanctuary? Depending on when your church was built, it may or may not be structurally sound in its present condition. A church restoration project can help restore your current space into one that is safer for your congregation and visitors.
If your space is too tight, you should consider a church restoration project.
You may have heard of the 80% rule. When a church’s sanctuary reaches 80% of its capacity, church growth can begin to be stifled. This is because visitors who come to an 80% full sanctuary often think there isn’t enough space for them and end up deciding to go elsewhere. If your congregation has been blessed with consistent growth, church expansion is something you should seriously consider.
