The west porch
gives a view from the road through the whole length
of the church right down to the altar. The sanctuary
with the altar is lit up at certain times of the day
and night. Looking into the church in this way shows
our openness to the world and our desire to share
The use of glass for the roof and doors of the west
porch create a light and welcoming space.
The porch also gives a place for the administrative
work of the parish to be done. 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.
