Mary Help of Christians
Catholic Church, Sawtell
Sawtell Church underwent a major renovation which included removal of the front façade to make way for the new entry and disable access.
The entry features local Hardwood columns and Beams with new custom made entry doors and windows. The recycled Ironbark columns accent the beauty of the Bell Tower which gives the church it’s beachside charm.
Inside, the original trusses were exposed and restored to their original splendour and coated with natural stain to further enhance the cathedral like ceilings.
A quiet space was added for young children, as well as, a modern kitchen with a coffee machine for after church functions. The new extensive covered outdoor area is ideal for social gatherings.
The church now has in place a modern interactive audio visual system bringing it into the 21st Century while maintaining the quaint beach village church appeal.
