Churches in poor or bad condition can present a huge challenge to parishes and making grant applications, raising funds and seeing through repair projects is demanding. But those hurdles can be overcome.
Here we celebrate success stories which show what can be achieved. Important lessons are learnt along the way and these can be shared with other parishes about to start on similar journeys.
St Faith’s Church and Community Centre, Hexton
In 2015 St Faith’s Church and Community Centre, Hexton was suffering from failing chancel and vestry roofs and gutters. It has now been restored and is no longer ‘Heritage at Risk’. Read more about this great success story (page 6).
Please contact churchwarden Tony Howells on 01582 881611 if you want to talk about some of the lessons learnt.
