A Nottingham church building is to revert to its original use after being let to El Shaddai - a contemporary multi-cultural church group.
The historic building in Castle Gate, which dates back to 1863, is a former Congregational Church which is still owned by the Nottingham-based Congregational Federation. The Federation has some 280 affiliated churches, and brings together independent free churches for mutual support and the advancement of the Christian faith.
The grade II listed building has been used as a church for several years, although it has also been a venue for meetings and community events. The Congregational Federation now occupies an adjoining building.
Five year lease agreed for 13,000 sq ft building
Alex Nix, Surveyor in our Nottingham office said that El Shaddai have let the 13,000 sq ft building on a five year lease.
He said: “This property is a distinctive and well-known building in the centre of the city and I am pleased that it will continue to have the use for which it was originally built.”
El Shaddai – which takes its name from a Judaic word for God – has churches across the UK, as well as in America and Africa.
