Blenheim Baptist Church in Leeds has the honour of being next to the best tall building in the world! 

In July 2009, the 
church moved into a new building, part of a complex which also has the Leeds Metropolitan University Faculty of Art, Environment and Technology that won a prestigious Best Tall Building in the World Award last October from the Chicago based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. Since their move, the church have been developing a ministry to those at the university and have recently started a cafe to offer a quiet space for students and staff which is attracting a steady number of regular customers.

The cafe has been partly financed by a BUGB Mission Project grant, something that minister David Humphries is very appreciative of. "We couldn't have opened the cafe of this high standard without the grant," he said.
