From 9 January the parish church is now closed for about twenty weeks until May to allow contractors to work on our much needed and long planned for improvements. We apologise for any inconvenience this may bring but do hope you will appreciate the necessity for the work. When completed you will then be able to see and enjoy all the benefits which we believe will enhance the beauty of the building as a wonderful place for worship, for greater community use and in welcoming our many visitors.

What will be happening?  We’re improving the heating, lighting, and some other features so that our beautiful church will be fit for future use by as many people as possible. The heating will be controlled by new gas boilers with the heat emitted from radiators laid in ducts below the floor surface through traditional cast iron grills. The existing nave pews will be re-laid onto new oak flooring that is level with the existing parts of tiled floor. New chairs in the side aisles instead of the small cramped pews will mean those spaces can give greater flexibility of use. A new electrics will be installed to improve our lighting and audio systems. The contractors have a national reputation for working on heritage sites.The church car park is closed to allow for the contractors work base.

Access to the churchyard remains open.
