Renovation Update

Great news for the parish.  We have completed all the planned phases of work on the outside of the church.  The building is now weather and watertight – secure against the elements!  The scaffolding is now in place in the sanctuary and the conservation of the painted interior will commence on Tuesday, 18th April.  Nat Clements and his team will undertake this work.

Below are images of paint damage due to the ingress of water that will soon be restored.
