This modern church was built in 1989 to replace the former building demolished in 1966. This modern octagonal structure was originally illuminated with orange coloured SON discharge lamps within troffer fittings recessed into the structural beams and some recessed compact fluorescent luminaires. These were all replaced with recessed LED units. A lighting scheme was designed utilising LED luminaires with expected life of 50,000 hours and a 5 year warranty with adequate output to improve the general lighting and to highlight certain features in those areas to improve the services for the Congregation, Clergy and help with the readings. Our initial design included lighting renders to illustrate how the lighting would appear when complete. All luminaires were DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) controlled and operated with an eDIN Scene setting system supplied by Mode Lighting.
“It’s good when simulation comes close to reality, the simulation package you used was worth the effort put in as it gave the PCC a reasonable view of what the final installation would look like.
All reactions have been very positive, the congregation can see the service sheets and the lighting is very subtle in that there is no glare but all the parts of the church are well lit. Two or three of the scenarios were used at Christmas, Father John and I will meet sometime soon to do some fine tuning. We had a powerpoint presentation during a sermon recently using an end wall and it was brilliant how we were able to go from full lights to reduced lighting in a very short timescale. The congregation were impressed as well!
A visiting vicar from Coventry was very impressed with the scheme and has threatened to send her churchwardens to look at it!”
