Mount Merrion Parish Church
The church is a symmetrical double-height redbrick parish church in the modernist style dominated by a vertical glazed gable with spire and adjoining hall, built c.1963 to designs by Dennis O'Donoghue Hanna. Although the design is fairly typical of a mid- twentieth century suburban church, of particular interest is the unusual and impressive roof structure and glulam supporting frames. The interior of the church was reordered in 2013 in order to make it a more versatile and accessible space that can better meet the needs of the local community.
The church needs to carry out a feasibility study into how to develop the main sanctuary and adjacent vestry rooms. The grant will go towards funding a building condition survey; a heat loss survey; alterations / extension options appraisal; building services appraisal; and the preparation of the budget cost.
