Church celebrates its 150 year anniversary with major refurbishment.

The High Street Methodist Church, in Welshpool, North Wales, has submitted a three phase refurbishment plan expected to cost £100,000. Plans include modernising the entire premises, including an enhancement of the external frontage.

The plans were displayed at the end of August and local parishioners are reportedly excited about the extensive redevelopment. The first phase plans to utilise the currently redundant space on the first floor, by converting it into a meeting room with conference facilities. The church already has disabled toilets on the ground floor, and it is hoped that with the installation of a new lift, it opens up the whole premises for those with mobility issues.

The Church Council also hope to see local residents utilising these facilities for workshops, exercise classes and meetings.

More work will be completed in the second phase by improving the disabled access to the premises, and this is to include designated parking bays and ramped areas.

The final phase, which is expected to begin at some point in 2015, will see the lower floor completely upgraded, with new toilet facilities, new lighting and extensive improvements to the current engineered flooring. North Wales parishioners will also see improvements to the high street façade of the building.

Phase three is expected to be the most expensive, but local residents and church officials alike are ready to see the new and improved facilities serving the community for years to come as it has for the last 150 years.
