Church Building Projects


Recent projects included repairing and refurbishing the church roofs, completed at the end of November 2015, and carrying out urgent repairs needed to the tower roof and belfry, completed in January 2016. 

The cost of the main roof project was met through the active support of church members and the local community to our Roof Appeal Fund and a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Appeal exceeded its original £100,000 target in less than a year with the fantastic support of parishioners and the local community.  Further monies coming into the Appeal were used to help fund the separate tower repairs for which no grant aid was possible.

The cost of the limited reordering work to open up the chancel area, completed in December 2017, has been met from our current fabric reserves.  But the Church Council is considering further developments to the church building, such as improving safe access and providing toilet facilities, which will need additional funding.  So please continue to give what you can - you can do this through the Blue Envelopes in church or securely on line through www.stlukesroof.net
