Two public sessions are to be held at the church on November 4th 2018 when the 3 options for new space, toilets and servery will be revealed. You will be able to ask question of the Project team and leave any feedback.
Since our last report Acanthus Clews, our architects, have been asked by us to undertake a Feasibility Study into how the requirements for modern facilities (toilets, servery) and extra space at Aldermaston Church can be achieved. This Study was funded through a grant from Oxford Diocese – New Projects Grant Programme.
The project team devised a set of Needs and Requirements as input to the architects for the Feasibility Study. A summary of these Needs and Requirements has been created as a leaflet and circulation started. The October 2018 Parish Magazines & Padworth Newsletter carries this summary.
The leaflet is reproduced here:

Next Steps – Sharing for Comment & Feedback
The findings of the Feasibility Study will be widely shared for comments and feedback. It is these comments and feedback that will determine the path to a final agreed solution.
DAC members, Acanthus Clews architects and Project St Marys Team discussing the options from the Feasibility Study on site.
1. Oxford Diocesan Advisory Council (DAC)
We met with members of the DAC at St Mary’s on 13th September as a preliminary to their council meeting on 12th November where they will discuss the Feasibility Study options and send a formal opinion back to us. We prepared two key documents for the DAC prior to them visiting the church.
