St Ebbe’s is a rapidly growing church in the heart of Oxford. It has a diverse congregation and is especially full during term time. To be able to gather the congregation more space was needed and galleries across the nave in the west and in the north and south aisles were added. A new doorway was formed in the north east corner which leads to a stair up to the gallery. A new building was built in the south west corner with an alternative stair and access into the church centre and the garden. There is a new heating system and lighting scheme and the church was redecorated throughout.
The project was given an award by the Oxford Preservation Society in 2018.
