We launched a major restoration appeal on 1 March 2023. This continues a long term programme to restore the fabric of our church and maintain it for the use and enjoyment of all.

These pictures show the state of our church

before our major restoration programme began in 2007.

You can read more about the work we have done,

and our plans for the future, on the Restoration Appeal page
