Elim Church (former), Icknield Way/Norton Way North, Letchworth Garden Centre

Now converted into an Elim run Montessori School which opened in January 2015. An Elim congregation, the first in Hertfordshire, began in 1923. This building was designed by Cecil Hignett and constructed by the congregation in 1926-27 around a  wooden building. It was replaced around 2006 by the nearby and much larger Icknield Centre. The top two views are before opening as a school. The lower views show it in use as a school. The sanctuary has been divided into three classrooms with a false ceiling that allows new facilities to be added on an upper floor that is currently being completed (October 2017). The entrance area to the church retains contemporary decoration and built-in niches for books. I am grateful to the church for the invitation to visit and photograph this building.
