Renovation of Church Car Park

We are happy to say that Phase 2 of a series of improvements to Our Lady Queen of Peace, that will make it more beautiful and more suitable to our needs, is almost completed.

The entire car park is now usable, with some smaller aspects of the project still remaining for after Easter. We apologise for any inconvenience experienced during this work and thank you for your understanding and support.

This phase addressed the exterior of the church and involved the following:

  • Provision of a Park and Pray area in front of the church with a paved plaza where people can gather.
  • Reorganisation of the vehicle entrances and exits to the main road.
  • New front boundary along the main road, incorporating an attractive capped boundary wall with railings.
  • Safer and more user-friendly Pay and Display area.
  • Enhanced landscaping that will soften the front of the church and improve its setting.
  • Upgrading of the car park surface and underground drainage throughout the Church grounds.
  • Necessary repairs and remedial works to the church building exterior facades, perimeter concrete plinths and flat roofs.
  • Provision of secure bicycle parking facilities.
 
 

 

PHASE ONE was completed in time for the International Eucharistic Congress, and made our church a more worthy place for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and for the other activities that took place in our church during that historic week. This work involved:

  • Insulation of the entire attic area
  • Painting of the church, porches, sacristy etc.
  • Improved and more cost-efficient heating
  • Better and more flexible lighting
  • Upgrading of the confessionals

Further phases to improve the interior of the church will be undertaken according as funds become available.

The design concept for Phases Three and Four addresses other aspects of the interior of the church with a view to providing additional facilities, while reducing the capacity for normal use from 6 to 4 blocks of seating. This includes:
  • Construction of a new Day Chapel where the last block of seats is currently located.
  • Provision (on the other side, at the back) of a Multi-Purpose Room that will serve as a crying room, meeting/lecture room, coffee room etc.
  • Extend the balcony above these rooms to provide additional tiered seating for larger congregations at special events and a new location for the choir
  • It is also proposed to condense and improve the layout of the sanctuary area, enhancing the improvements realised in Phase 1.
