The rebirth of Holy Trinity, Boar Lane is nearly complete as builders put the finishing touches to the new-look city centre worship hub.
The Revd Sam Corley, Rector of Leeds, said its redesigned and refurbished interior will be ready to reveal to the public in the New Year:
“Leading a building project in the midst of a pandemic has been interesting, to say the least, and we’re really pleased to be nearing the end,” Revd Sam said.
“What the pandemic has shown is that the Church continues, with our buildings open or closed.
“The church is people continuing to do all the things we do, and don’t usually do, in response to needs.
“But buildings are important as spaces to encounter God and other people.
“There’s been a church on Boar Lane since 1727, and it’s now undergone works, sponsored by the Church Commissioners’ Strategic Development Fund to turn it into a centre for worship and prayer for people who live and work in the city centre,” Revd Sam said.
The Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) has worked alongside the scheme and its Secretary, Lisa McIntyre took a recent tour of the building.
“It’s really exciting to see the near completion of this fantastic project,” said Lisa.
“It’s testimony to how good it is to work closely together on such an historic building.”
