The future of the United Reformed Church and the Cromwell Hall could soon be decided. Architects will be presenting their vision at a meeting at 10.30am on Saturday 27th February to members of the congregation and local residents. A further church meeting will be held following the morning service on Sunday 28th February to discuss which plans should be chosen.
The church and halls were given grade II status in 2009 however the congregation were recently forced to sell the Grove and Centenary Halls to raise funds for the £750,000 needed for essential repairs to the church and remaining hall. The church was originally that of St Luke’s Parish at St Pancras and was moved brick by brick to Wanstead in 1867 when the rail terminal was built.
Local residents are encouraged to attend to discuss the future of these historic buildings which form an important part of Wanstead’s landscape.
