Planning and Praying Part II

Renovating and constructing a chapel can be expensive and challenging to construct, but you can make it happen with the proper steps and planning.

A church chapel should be a place where people feel welcome and comfortable. And it should have adequate facilities that meet the needs of those who will use it and those who provide spiritual guidance. We are using the guidance of our friends at Memphis Masonry Pros for the exact steps to use when planning a renovation such as ours.


The first step to constructing a church chapel is examining the specifications of your denomination and figuring out what you want from your church. For example, if your church is evangelical and you want to bring in more people through the doors, it would be beneficial to provide a café where people can meet for coffee after service or during mid-week meetings.


Without good leadership, even the most beautiful chapel design is useless. So once you have decided on your plan of action, you can start making preparations for the construction process.
First, you need to consider whether or not your church needs to be renovated before any construction can begin. If it needs renovation, the sooner that is done, the better. If the chapel is in good condition, you must obtain planning permission.
Next, once planning permission has been obtained, find out if any laws could affect your project. For example, measures can be introduced to prevent construction work near protected species of birds or trees.
