RCCG Living Water Parish Move to Herbert Minton Building, Stoke

Stoke-on-Trent has seen the decline and demolition of many of its historic buildings in recent years.  These icons of our cultural history are precious to us and so it is really encouraging to announce that Living Water Parish is breathing life into one of our most famous Grade II listed buildings – The Herbert Minton Building, opposite Sainsbury’s in Stoke. This has been purchased by the parish which will formally relocate into the building on 02 May, and first Sunday (Thanksgiving) service will hold on 07 May 2017 – beginning 10:00 am.

RCCG-Herbert  MintonBuildingLiving Water Parish has ambitious plans to use it to the maximum in reaching out and serving the community; something it has been unable to do satisfactorily from its present premises.  This move creates a high profile and significantly situated church in the City. The building will now be known as the Redemption Community Hub and is planned to house the worship auditorium and offices of the church as well as a nursery, Christian Resource centre and meeting rooms that will be available for hire by local folks, businesses and the public.

The Herbert Minton Building has a proud history, built in 1858 by James Murray.  Until last year it was used by the NHS but it will be best remembered as the College of Art.  Probably the heyday of the College’s success was in the 1950s when it concentrated mainly on lithographic processes used extensively in the ceramic industry. It contributed a great deal to the needs of local industries, and also attracted students from all over the U.K. and elsewhere who came to gain a thorough understanding of litho-printing.

Above all, the Redemption Community Hub will provide a place for vibrant worship, conferences and other Christian events and proclaiming the gospel and love of Jesus Christ to all in Stoke.
