Bethel Mennonite Church
An addition to an existing facility, the new sanctuary provides seating for 660 people, space for a choir, a two storey atrium with a nursery suite on a mezzanine level to the one side of the atrium, a new library below the mezzanine level looking into the atrium, and a new administrative office component. The existing basement of classrooms is ramped down to a larger new basement with additional classrooms for children and adults. The complex is served by a passenger elevator to all levels, thus making the complex as a whole, barrier free.
It should be noted that because of the good acoustics in this sanctuary, Bethel Mennonite Church has been adopted by Chorale and Ensemble groups, such as the Philharmonic Choir and Baroque Ensemble, amongst others, as a performing venue.
