Construction is underway on the rebuild of Oxford Terrace Baptist Church in Christchurch - sadly the original heritage building was severely damaged in the Canterbury Earthquakes, collapsing on February 22 2011. However through disaster comes opportunity and the new building will enable a wide range of community based activities to be housed and hosted.
Canopy is working closely with the Church, Architect (Andrew Barrie Laboratory Ltd) and other consultants to deliver a landscaped setting for the new building incorporating many of the existing established trees in the landscape design. New sculpture and seating will be created from stone and timbers salvaged from the heritage building.
We are looking forward to helping this project emerge from the ground over the next few months.
