South & west porches
The south porch
The extension was described as a “very attractive porch joining the church and the hall, somewhat in the style of a Lych-gate, like a bridge between the spiritual and the secular, between the Church and the World”.
Above the south door of the church are two reliefs, "Suffer Little Children To Come Unto Me" on the outside and "Ask And It Shall Be Given" on the inside. See the pictures on the page Porches.
The west porch
The porch also gives a place for the administrative work of the parish to be done as the parish office is housed here. There is a parish administrator who currently works three mornings and two afternoons a week. This therefore allows the church to be staffed and open much more of the time, so that people can come in to pray, sit quietly, or find out things about the church and its activities. Find out about the office on the page Parish office.
