What is an intervention? what sort of project is it good for, with who? How do the people paying benefit?



St JOhn's East Bowling, Bradford

A new intervention of bold entrance lobby, free-standing office and storage pods, together with re-decorations has enabled this Grade II listed church building to facilitate the employment a community worker and see the building utilised day and evening. As a busy church in Bradford, West Yorkshire, level access was an ongoing problem and the church sanctuary underused compared to the adjacent hall. A Feasibility Study was prepared by Arctic Associates leading to a grant award of £500K by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Together with input from St John's PCC, Bradford Diocese, Bradford City Council and the Victorian Society a scheme was approved and today the church building is a real asset to the community which it serves, and the many congregations who meet there.
