We are very proud of the restoration and reordering projects which have been going on mainly during the Covid two years. Firstly a roof alarm was installed in 2020 . Not long after this a new Terne Coated Stainless steel roof was put on to the Baptistery  and South Aisle roof  and completed in October 2021.  Finally , our biggest project to date was the reordering of the inside of the church : 4 rear pews were taken out and a toilet plus kitchenette installed in the vestry . This was completed at the end of April 2022. A summary of this particular project appears on the "News and Notices" page. Please have a look.
