How to Remodel Your Small Church

Full Circle

Many small churches feel they can't afford renovations under typical church construction methods. Read to learn more about what to consider before beginning your remodel process and how new construction approaches can deliver your project faster and more affordably.

Determine the Project's Process

Many small churches feel they can't afford renovations under typical church construction methods. Anthony Christian Church had those same concerns being a church in a small community. The sanctuary space of the church was outdated and needed a fresh, new remodel.

When beginning the remodeling process, we advise all churches to consider the journey they are about to take and the approach used to deliver the project on time and at a price that works for them. Research other churches and check out their sanctuaries! Looking at other churches is a great way to see what is possible and begin to assess the direction that will best suit your space.

Before Beginning a Church Renovation:

  1. Know that renovations can be done affordably and with limited downtime
  2. Look for a partner that specializes in renovating churches
  3. Renovate in phases and start with the most significant impact
  4. Find an experienced partner that delivers complete renovation

Find a Partner that Specializes

Choosing a partner that works with you, not against you, allows you to receive a complete renovation at an affordable price with limited downtime. A partner that specializes in church renovations is necessary to understand the needs and concerns of the church.

When working with your chosen partner, consider the project's scope. Does it correspond with your financial situation? Determining where your small church needs the most attention will help you evaluate where to get started. If your small church has many areas that need remodeling, renovate in phases and begin with the project that has the most impact on your community.

"All those different things that we asked, they were able to do, and do it for less than what we thought we could do it for."

Figure Out the Finances

After you decide on the scope with your partners, small churches must discuss how they will fund the project. Work with your local bank to discuss the church's financial options. And consider working with members of your congregation to help save for the renovation.

During the renovation process, small churches should expect to work directly with someone from the company to discuss their needs and lead both teams through the process. From there, you should expect to see high-quality renderings with multiple options to choose from. Your partner should be open to suggestions and desire to work with you to create the space you're envisioning.
