In 1991 St Peters-upon-Cornhill became the home of the Cornhill Training Course. Now the building is used extensively throughout the week for many people of all ages and from all over the world.
The works would enable this ministry to continue and to expand. It would make the building more attractive to new people, especially tourists and the disabled.
On Sunday there is a Mandarin-speaking service. The congregation consists of people from mainland China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan who are in London for a few years to study or work.
Mid-week evenings see over 200 students and workers meet to study the Bible including one evening for those from overseas who are only planning to be in London for a few years. They are able to meet over a meal prepared in the new kitchen.

On Friday evenings the City's only youth group meets for fun and fellowship, attracting young people from all over London and from a number of churches.
Marriage preparation courses and courses for people investigating the Christian faith are put on from time-to-time and are open to all.
