Northborough church launches ambitious expansion

NORTHBOROUGH

Striving to accomodate an expanding congregation of more than 300, the Church of the Nativity in Northborough has embarked on a campaign to raise $625,000 to renovate its buildings as part of a three phase plan, church leaders tell Globe West.

The Howard Street Episcopal church will undergo the first stage of its transformation at the beginning of the year, the Rev. Leonard Cowan said. Expected to take three years, the project includes renovating the original 1963 chapel, parish hall, office space, and parking lot.

The second phase will cost $1.2 million and include the construction of a new nursery school and youth ministry building, Cowan said. The final $3.1 million phase calls for a new worship center and Christian education youth space.
