Hyde Park Community

United Methodist Church
Hyde Park N14  - Project Description

Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church is a 2400 member congregation with two historic campuses – the Grace Campus in Hyde Park, and the OTR Community Church Campus in Downtown Cincinnati.

MSA worked with the Congregation to develop a series of interim renovation projects at both the Grace and OTR campuses, with special attention to updating finishes, reorganizing ministry programs, increasing flexibility, and looking at site improvements.

Master Plan in Motion

A dual-campus Master Plan was completed which looks at the existing physical plant and property at each campus, and provides a roadmap to assist the congregation in the review of short and long-term expansion for both the Downtown and Grace Campuses.

MSA has developed the design for “Phase One” of the Master Plan, a “Connections Center” that is an extension of the Church’s 90 year mission to serve their immediate community. A large gathering space is designed to allow for multipurpose community gatherings and includes a café as well as indoor playground. A lower level Family Center is developed in conjunction with a full renovation of the original church Refectory to serve as a center for the Church’s Family & Children’s Ministry programs.
