Each week I discover more exciting churches in High Wycombe. On busy Hatters Lane we find St Andrew's Church. The building is low, red brick confection, with a cross fixed to one wall. A skinny spire coyly protrudes from the roof (well they had include one). It was amusing to photograph St Andrew's through the traffic and paint it later in the studio.

Poking around, as I invariably do, I discovered that St Andrews built in 1967 and extended in 1986.
Now it seems that even more space is wanted, bigger foyer, kitchen, offices on site and meetings rooms and the flexibility to be able to use at least 4 large self-contained areas at the same time. There will be real multi-dimensional spirituality with four large services happening concurrently.
‘The answer has been to wrap it (the church) around with new rooms and facilities’ say JBKSArchitects and add
‘We are praying for the Lord to provide Planning Application favour and success, and finance. The bible says, “And my God shall supply all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19.’
