  • Need

    Need

    St John's Church, Hoxton is an amazing heritage asset - described by English Heritage as 'architecturally and aesthetically the most significant building in Hoxton'. However, the building is in need of urgent conservation work, and we're also struggling for usable space and facilities for community use. We want to make the heritage and history of Hoxton more accessible for all. We also want to help tackle the affordable housing crisis by building some genuinely affordable rental homes.

    Solution

    The project will enable us to undertake necessary repairs and improvements to conserve, open up and interpret the historic church building, as well as build a new community-use annexe for youth groups, food banks, community events, toddler groups and the like. We will refurbish the crypt to create affordable co-working space, and release a plot of car park land to develop affordable homes.
