Project Resound update

January 22, 2019

Many of you may have seen the scaffolding outside the west window of the church over the past month whilst our stained-glass window artist and her team have been measuring up for the new glass elements. They have now taken the paper templates back to South Wales so that the glass-making and window assembly can commence. Phase 2 of the project is underway!

Meanwhile with £32,741 raised to date we are now ready to start work on further fund-raising for Phase 3. This is to remove the old window and install the new one; currently planned for the early autumn. With this in mind, please support our next events:
