Church Roof Refurbishment and Development Projects 

Work started on refurbishment of the church roof on 5th May with erection of scaffolding and a temporary roof over all the building except the tower.  The main contractor is Haydock Slating Ltd.  The scaffolding has been clad with metal sheeting at ground level for safety and insurance reasons.  You can follow news about the project on our special page here where regular updates will be given.

The Roof Appeal achieved its £100,000 target, for which we are most grateful.  Further monies coming into the Appeal will be used to fund urgent work to the tower and the church development project to provide toilet facilities and changed access to the church. So please continue to give what you can - you can continue to do this in church through the Blue Envelopes or securely on line through www.stlukesroof.net
