Church Renovations that Build Community

The term “community” used to refer to the people who lived in proximity to one another; today the term often indicates people who share a common interest. Community of both types can be fostered by paying attention to how a congregation exists among and connects with its neighborhood. In an article exploring the ways church renovations influence community-building, Joan Huyser-Honig looks at the impact of architectural features like flexible space, lighting, entrance design and exterior landscaping. Read "Renovating Churches to Build a Sense of Community," housed on the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship website, explore extensive embedded and related links, and start a discussion with the included conversation prompts. Also read the companion article, “Design Guidelines for Church Renovations.”
