St Aidan's Church, Plymouth

This new church was built on the site of an earlier Victorian church which was too large and un-manageable for current needs, and was provided through an enlightened deal with a developer whereby the new church was provided at no cost, the developer using the remainder of the site for housing (featured under our "housing" section - Flats at St Aidan's).  This principle was used as a model for other similar arrangements across the country.

The new building provides highly flexible space, with 'disappearing' space dividers, catering for traditional worship but also for wider community uses.  Some features from the earlier church were able to be incorporated into the new building, notably the stained glass window.
