Building for the Future
Planning consent given. You may view the plans on the church noticeboard.
Fund raising going well.
Our hopes and dreams!
We propose to call our new hall
'The Livingstone Hall'
we are also hoping to have a small museum to display our church heritage, this will be called
'The Taylor Gallery'
If you are willing to help us with this project or fund raise in any way please get in touch.
The Church has been serving the community of Ongar since 1662 when the Church was
established as a ‘Free Church’
When the Church halls were built in 1919 they were modern and innovative, providing an amenity for the community of Ongar
We wish to continue providing that facility with a building fit for the future. Plans have been approved and fundraising is well under way to provide better access (lift), disabled toilets and kitchen and to make the halls more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly.
We are going to rename the hall to the Livingstone Hall, we will expand our drop-in services for all the community. We propose to have a gallery named after the famous Jane Taylor (author of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, which we will call The Taylor Gallery. It will be available for local groups to exhibit and we will display our Church history and local history in association with the Ongar Millennium History Society.
This is a very exciting project which will attract more visitors to the town and provide a hub for many local groups and residents.
We hope this brief outline has sparked your interest.
Brenda Hall our Treasurer is trying to raise funds through
'Just Giving' why not take a look and see our progress.
