Church Roof Refurbishment and Roof Appeal  

Work started with site preparation by the main contractors, Haydock Slating Ltd., on 5th May including protection of the church windows, war-memorial and stone paving.  Scaffolding has been erected around the church supporting the temporary roof.  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 has now achieved its £100,000 target, for which we are most grateful.  Any 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
