TREASURING THE PAST • CELEBRATING THE PRESENT • CHALLENGED BY THE FUTURE
St Mary’s Church, Hadleigh was recognised as one of England’s major parish churches in 2016. Its last major restoration and re-ordering took place 150 years ago. We believe that it is now time to renew the building, so that it can meet the needs and challenges of the 21st century.
St Mary’s is a major asset for the wider community in Hadleigh and beyond. As a parish church serving an expanding town, it is primarily a place of worship. The church is also used regularly by a broad range of organisations with educational, social, cultural and recreational interests. There is no other building in our locality large enough to accommodate their activities.
The Renewal Project is divided into three areas of development:
- Major Fabric Work
- Interpretation Project
A Committee was commissioned by the PCC to set up the framework of management for taking these four areas forward, and researching information that will be required to move forward.
