Building starts at large Norwich church and hub 

After breaking ground at the end of October, builders have now started work on a new church and community asset in Heartsease for SOUL Church, comprising a 1,200-seat auditorium, nursery, community shop, café, sensory room and much more.

A skilled team of developers are taking on the massive 58,000 square foot project and building works have started on what promises to be a landmark building and a significant community asset for the people of Norwich. 

Senior Pastor of SOUL Church Jon Norman said, “This marks the start of an exciting journey. It’s been a long time in the planning and it’s amazing to think we’ll be able to see it taking shape over the coming months. We have so many community projects in the pipeline, for kids, seniors, young people, parents, job seekers and more. We’ve outgrown our current premises, but this building will enable us to offer practical help, support and more to people across the area.”
