renovating reconfiguring redesigning our campus

Having just celebrated our first 90 years of ministry, we have much to be thankful for as we reflect on the unique role this church plays in our community and region. This campaign is an exciting moment for us to come together once more to ensure that Christ Church Cranbrook will be stronger than ever for the next 90 years and beyond. Expanding and modernizing our campus will strengthen our core mission and rich traditions while opening up our facilities to reach more people, build new relationships and create new opportunities for meeting Jesus, finding Joy, sharing Beauty, and serving Others.

Improve accessibility

South Entrance

Currently, the parking area outside of our South Entrance has only four spaces for accessible parking for all. In addition, cars must back up in order to exit the parking area. The new entrance will feature a circular parking area with up to fifteen spaces for accessible parking. This will make it safer and easier for people with mobility issues to enter the church through the South Entrance, which is the entrance closest to our elevator. We will also install a walkway so that parents and children can enter our early childhood learning center without crossing behind cars that are backing up.

Expand our Multipurpose space

Hospitality Center

Our current Hospitality Center can only comfortably accommodate 100 people. Last year, 33,227 people attended our religious services or attended one of courses, which an average weekly attendance of 627 people a week. By opening walkways between the Hospitality Center and the newly enclosed Atrium, we will create a combined space that will be able to accommodate the growing number of people who are using our facilities. Our renovated Hospitality Center will increase our capacity to more than 200 people to fit comfortably in the round for our many events involving food and fellowship.

Create Flexible Classrooms & Meeting Rooms

Children

Our Sunday School classrooms are spread throughout the church, with some three stories below our worship space. This makes it difficult for our children and their teachers to access their classrooms and complete a lesson before rejoining worship. Closer classrooms on the third floor, with more natural light will make teaching and learning easier and more enjoyable.

Create dedicated entrances & a reception area

Dedicated Entrances

We need to create a dedicated entrance to the church offices as well as to a dedicated entrance to our early childhood education center through our South door. This will ensure that our visitors find their way easily to our offices, and our children find their way easily and safely to their classrooms. In our new configuration, on weekdays, our South entrance will be the primary way we accept deliveries.
