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.

The Present

Our current target is to raise £150,000 to repair the roof.  Most of our events are organised to raise money for this appeal.

The Future

Once 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.
