Help save Church House


Church House needs urgent structural repair

We listened to the needs of our local community and have a plan to make it fit for purpose

Please help us restore it for current and future generations

We need to act now

There is a lack of affordable, flexible community space in Monken Hadley and the surrounding area for private use, community groups and charities. Our hall could fill that need, but it urgently needs restoring.

Many features, including the roof, heating system, floorplan layout and communal facilities all now need full restoration or replacement.

Adding a steel frame will strengthen the overall structure and enable us to reinstate an upper floor to extend the building's use.

The entire rear section of the building is in a state of disrepair

All brickwork is weathered and requires extensive work

Old roofing tiles require urgent maintenance and replacement

What we need to do

We have consulted widely in the community to understand how the hall can better serve Hadley, Barnet and beyond in the future. The updated building will be more welcoming, accessible, and more flexible for the church and local community.

Our priority is to replace the roof and reinforce the walls of our heritage building, as well as improving energy efficiency and reducing its carbon footprint.

The new upper floor will create a flexible new space to provide three upstairs rooms to facilitate a range of office, musical, health or teaching options.

The reconfigured ground floor will maximise community use by being a single level, flexible space with excellent facilities, including a modern kitchen, accessible toilets and increased storage.

How you can help

Please help us raise the funding to achieve our goal of restoring our hall so it can be used and enjoyed by current and future generations.

See our donations page. Thank you.
