Plans for floral church in former nightclub blossom

 

A TROPICAL church within Rotherham’s old Adam and Eve nightclub has been given the go-ahead by planners.

The former Talbot Lane congregation will open a new Methodist base — with a twist — at the top of Howard Street.

It will be inspired by Sheffield’s Winter gardens — featuring flora, fauna, fish and turtles — and include a sensory space and memorials room.

The proposals have been approved and a Rotherham Council spokesman said: “It will bring a vacant building back into use, support opportunities for learning, help address social deprivation, enhance the town centre as a family friendly destination and potentially broaden the appeal of the town centre.”

The Tropical Church — tagline “Methodism in the Market” — will host various drop-ins related to dementia, mental health and chaplaincy.

School visits, a community choir, Lego club and family worship are also planned.

The congregation moved out of Talbot Lane — a site of Methodist worship for 258-years — last summer.
