Following a groundbreaking and blessing of the tools on May 1, construction began in mid-May at The Episcopal Church of St. Martin, at 640 Hawthorn Lane in Davis.

A 500-square-foot narthex (or lobby) and shade structure will give a new look to the front of the main church building. The interior of the church sanctuary also will be renovated. More energy-efficient windows will be added as well as new roofing, paint, carpeting, lighting and a sound system.

While construction is taking place, churchgoers are worshiping in the parish hall, where they originally worshiped from 1963 to 1967, while the main church building was first being built.

The parish hall and adjoining kitchen also are being remodeled and upgraded to provide a more functional, energy-efficient and pleasant space. This building is essential to St. Martin’s outreach efforts and is where Davis Community Meals offers three meals each week to the community.

The meals and other community activities that take place in this building, such as 12-step and Scout meetings, will be able to continue during construction, the Rev. Mark Allen said in a news release.

“We are fortunate to be working with a general contractor that understands the importance of our outreach efforts and is working with us to make sure the community groups that rely on our facilities can still use them during construction,” Allen said.

One of the classroom buildings also is being remodeled to provide better classroom and meeting space and to add a music classroom, which will be named after former St. Martin’s music director Dona Brandon.

Architect Eric Doud of Spirit Designs in Winters designed the additions and remodeled areas. Monley Cronin Inc. of Woodland is the general contractor. To fund the work, St. Martin’s held a capital campaign last year and was able to raise the money needed via donations and pledges from church members.

All of the projects are expected to be completed by the end of September.

During construction, services at St. Martin’s are at 7:45 and 10 a.m. Sundays and at 12:10 p.m. Tuesdays. For more information, visit churchofstmartin.org.
