Epainos Ministries is a New Testament Church of God (NTCG) Church in Mile End. The NTCG was established to support the propagation of the gospel through Christ-centred mission and ministry. We are committed to growth – in numbers, in spiritual and personal development, in our governance and in our impact on society.
The location is in a dense urban area of high deprivation. It is a young, ethnically and religiously diverse population. We now have opportunities to be socially and culturally relevant to our local audience as well as catering for a wider audience.
The church of Holy Trinity was closed after becoming redundant in 1984 and since then its condition has gradually deteriorated to its present condition of dilapidation. It is Grade II listed and on the Heritage at Risk Register.
Much of this phase is developmental and the aims are fourfold:
- Complete a heritage audit, a community audit and community consultations, with pop-up pilot projects to test out different approaches.
- Training and organisational development to equip the Church to manage this project, to partner with other organisations and to create a ‘Community Management Group’ responsible for delivering the project.
- Investigative work to understand the scope of repairs needed to remove this building from the Heritage at Risk Register and the ongoing future costs. To create a Maintenance Plan, Statements of Need and of Significance.
- Feasibility work and business planning exploring possible options for how the building and churchyard can be used by the public. This will explore options that will help provide sources of long-term revenue with short and long-term uses as the work progresses.
