The expanding congregation and large Junior Church at Burniston Methodist Church led to accommodation difficulties within this small fixed pew Victorian village Chapel. Additionally, a flight of steps into the Church and internal steps within, all caused difficulties for Church members. The purchase of land at the side of the Church gave the opportunity to extend the building to accommodate greater numbers. It also gave the opportunity to provide a building more compatible with modern styles of worship and to adapt and convert the existing buildings to provide community and youth facilities. The resultant new larger Worship Area is contemporary in style, and joined to the existing building by a glazed aisle Fellowship Area. The new front entrance glazing provides an open view into the Worship Area, making it more visually accessible to the public. The centrally located Fellowship Area provides a hub for all the Church family and the Junior Church have taken control of the old Chapel area. A nine year period of fund raising, planning and eventual redevelopment has produced an exemplary and adaptable building for this thriving Church community.
