The Threshold Project
Building the West End Extension

Vision

Artist Impression of new extension

This is the story of a vision for a church and its people — the local community of Summertown, Cutteslowe & Waterways.

The Threshold is a community project. It offers an invitation to the local community to change the face of the church and to get involved.

This is why we are asking for your help and support.

We believe that the Threshold Project will be:

A place of welcome — Opening up the church throughout the week and inviting the local community to enter and engage. The Threshold will become an active centre of church life and prayer outside of normal 'worship' times.

A place for community — New facilities will encourage different user groups to enjoy the church space. A meeting area, a kitchen, an office and much-needed toilets will make St Michael's become more welcoming and hospitable for the entire local community.

A place for healing — Creating an environment so that the church can be used for promoting care and welfare in the community. The Threshold will be offered to local care and health organisations for meetings, talks and consultations. The church environment lends itself to the pursuit of quietness and reflection.

A place for creativity — Providing a creative space where talent and beauty flourishes. The Threshold will enhance St Michael's growing reputation as a venue for music and the arts.
