We are looking to get a substantial grant to help pay towards work that needs doing to our two lych-gates (which are rotting), for our clock-mechanism (where a key component will need replacing), to some of our stained-glass windows (which are showing the effects of time), and crucially towards a new boiler so that the church can continue to be used in the winter months. No one seems to remember quite when the current boiler was put in, but we believe it is due its pension imminently, or may already have one!

Repair to the Lych Gates that are Currently Rotting

Replacement of the Failed Mechanism in the Clock Tower

Repair Some of the Stained Glass Windows

Replacement of the old boiler and heating system, parts for which are becoming harder and harder to source for repairs

Please help us, not least by encouraging friends and neighbours in the community to fill in a questionnaire which has been developed to show the connections the church has to the community.

The more that are filled in showing connections the better chance of a grant!
