The Church Building Project
Over the last 3 years we have been progressing a permanent solution for our roof. The current roof leaks seriously and the presentation below shows some examples of both the problems with the roof and the impact inside.
The project has received planning permission and approval from the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC). Our faculty application has also been approved. The detailed design has been completed and Building Regs approval is in place.
Whilst we have made significant progress with fund raising we were unsuccessful with one recent bid for a grant that would have allowed the project to proceed to build stage this summer. So with the roof still leaking the fund raising will continue. Please see our Fundraising page.
We gained some welcome Press coverage and support from our MP for our plight during July. You can read the reports here:-
