Frampton Park Baptist Church in Hackney

Design: Matthew Lloyd Architects LLP

Location: Frampton Park Road, London E9 7PQ, England

Frampton Park Baptist Church sits prominently in a council estate in the London Borough of Hackney, replacing a 1950’s building that was in poor condition and no longer fit for purpose.

Frampton Park Baptist Church

The new church provides its thriving congregation with multi-functional community centred accommodation: a café, crèche, offices, youth club, studio and a worship space, which also serves as a sports hall to support its youth and community programmes, funding for all of which was enabled by the provision of three new residential blocks.

It was vital that the church should be visible and welcoming: the church, clad in pale, textured brickwork, is 3 storeys and stands out from the local streetscape with its imposing 6 storey tower – a reference to traditional church design – and serves as a local landmark, a cross etched into the corner is illuminated at night.

The café’s glazed doors open onto a public square, ground and first floors are given to community spaces, with the worship space on the uppermost floor. The spacious pitched roof volume promises a spiritual purpose, further emphasized in the shadows and textures created by the fall of vaulted light. Constructed and self-finished internally in cross-laminated timber, it is asymmetrically appended with a smaller secondary aisle, containing a raised stage. The pragmatism of the brief and the completed scheme reflects the Baptist tradition, with its strong emphasis on service to the wider community.
