St. Bede’s Episcopal Church

Working with an architect, J.A. Brennan provided planning and design services for this church expansion project. J.A.Brennan helped the client obtain approval for a Conditional Use Permit from Kitsap County’s Hearing Examiner.

The site design includes a Memorial Garden, Contemplative Garden, road noise-attenuating columbaria and an iconic sign wall to draw people’s attention to the church. The design proposes sustainable features such as rain water and roof water collection for irrigation. Processional Path provides a place for the congregation to partake in ceremonial events. A new play area doubles as a play area during congregational times as well as an outdoor lunch spot for staff.
