PLANS to expand a Bradford church to create a 100 seat cafe have been approved by Bradford Council.

Earlier this year Life Church, which regularly attracts hundreds of worshippers submitted a planning application to improve facilities at its Abundant Life Centre on Wapping.

The building currently has a cafe on its first floor, but the new plans would see a ground floor cafe created in an area used for seminars. The church says the existing cafe is “difficult to reach” when the church is busy.

The new cafe would make facilities “more accessible” and “create a greater sense of space.”

The plan has now been approved by planning officers at Bradford Council.

The changes will also include a small extension which will create new toilet facilities.
