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. A 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.


The project currently awaits implementation funding.
