  • We are making some changes .........

    As custodians of an important piece of our heritage we are looking to future proof the building for the next 100 years. The current heating lighting and facilities in the church building are not conducive to this. We are anxious to preserve the current features of the building but to bring it up to date with toilet and kitchen facilities.
