We opened our new building on 22nd October 2008. The previous church was a very beautiful nineteenth century church towering above the village till 25th February 2004 when it tragically burned to the ground. The response of Bankfoot church and community is the present building, which has quickly become the heart of the village and where the tag line used during the build: “Bankfoot Church and Community Building together” continues to be a daily reality.

To some the Bankfoot Church Centre represents a new way of “doing church”, to others it is a recovery of a model based on scripture, where worship and daily life merge into one. 
The aim of the project to rebuild the church after the fire was to provide a twenty first century building accessible and relevant to all.  Billy Graham once said, “Don’t tell a starving man God loves him, feed him and show him.”  If any church is to be relevant to its community it must serve the needs of that community and speak a language it understands. Bankfoot Church Centre aimed to do exactly that. 

Throughout the planning and building process, the church sought to listen carefully to the needs, hopes and plans of its community. It also listened carefully for God's plans and was encouraged by the continued recurrence of the words of Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.”  These words seemed so fitting and deliberate that they became the inscription on the foundation stone on which the whole project was, quite literally built. Within the building there are facilities for all ages, from the soft play area for children to a day care centre for the elderly. Our hope is that all who enter the building will not only feel welcome but know that God is present in the midst of this community.
