In 2008 we were advised that we needed to make urgent repairs to our spire, tower and roof. With the help of the congregation, many friends and supporters, the wider community and various charitable trusts we were able to complete the work on the spire in 2010 and the tower in 2011. In all these cost £350,000.. We have now completed the work on the roof and the refurbishment of the North Aisle which has created a learning and exhibition space. In the process a section of fictive paneling was uncovered and has been restored.
The church hall roof has been leaking for some time but has become a matter of urgent concern. Thanks to Biffa Awards who have donated £41,000 towards the cost work has started on the roof and exterior and we will be able to bring the inside up to standard. as well. In addition we are very grateful to the National Lottery Awards for All programme for their donation of £10,000.
Now we have repaired the roof we need to turn our attention to the inside of the church building. The stained glass windows are in much need of repair, the heating and lighting systems need major attention and no doubt by the time we get to that point other urgent jobs will be found. and then there's the halls and the Trust School. The target for the whole appeal is £1 million.
As well as supporting our events - and having a great time at the same time - we will always welcome a donation, however small.
