Fifth Church is located within one of the most vibrant areas of Indianapolis known as Broad Ripple Village. Sitting on a prominent corner, it is settled in an energetic community of shops, restaurants, and small businesses.
There is a sense of longevity here at Fifth, and since the early 2000’s, we have undergone several large restoration projects on our 1935 Indiana limestone building. The architecture is known as Norman style or English Romanesque, utilizing simple arches, a tower, and rose windows.
We held a public dedication recital for our renovated pipe organ.
The project provided for a new digital console, the addition of exposed Principle pipes on the platform, and the re-working of existing pipes
inside the pipe chamber.
We recently renovated our landscape with fresh shrubs and perennials, and it has become an inspiring place to pause for walkers and passing cars. We often hear the words, “Thank you so much for doing this”!
Our members and attendees come from a variety of backgrounds and professions, including business, education, engineering, the arts, and technology –nearly every walk of life. And several languages are spoken, including German, Japanese, French and Lingala.
