During the summer of 2020, the lighting of the church was upgraded.

Previously the main church was only lighted by two converted oil lamps hanging in the aisle. These were replaced with LED uplighters on the beams in the nave and chancel.

This has the result that the view along the church is improved, but there are other benefits to the environment, the congregation and for the usability of the church in various ways.

The new LED lamps mean that the lighting is more energy efficient, and offers greater flexibility in lighting.

The lighting is in four banks, each of two lamps. Each lamp unit may be set to one of three levels of warmness: a daylight white, and two warmer yellow tones. The lamps may also be set to three levels of brightness. This means that different effects may be obtained by lighting parts of the church in separate ways, to create effects suitable for the occasion.
