BUILDING WORKS

Removal of plaster from the Ceilings and Walls in the Church

The work of removing the plaster to the ceilings and walls on the inside of the church, to let the roof and walls dry out on the Architect’s advice, will start on the 07 January 2019. Planning Permission has now been granted and the Faculty had already been obtained. Services will continue as normal, but it will certainly be the case that on some weeks we all will have to sit in different parts of the Church!
