What’s been happening in the church this week?

Progress report – 4th May 2023

It’s time for the finishing touches! We are expecting that the accessible  door will be installed in the next couple of weeks, and there is a good view over the wall at the progress on the path!

The oven and hob are now installed.  Members of CLASP helped us choose these and at last they have been installed.   They come with knobs which we all agreed were easier to use than electronic controls.

The Bishop Godwyn wall memorial is now cleaned up and in its new place on the west wall above a repaired floor memorial. Sadly the ledger on the floor was in very poor condition but the wall memorial now looks superb.

The whole building looks bigger than ever and now that the floor has been swept, the colours of the stone slabs are showing up well.

We showed off the project at the May Fayre and collected donations, more of which are still needed. You will find all the details for donation on the website.  We particularly need donations for more chairs – 150 needed and just 65 donations so far.

 


Although the building itself is closed, worship continues in The Cornerstone on Sundays (8, 9.30 and 11.15am) and on weekdays (Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 am and Thursday at 9 am) and the bell ringers have access to the tower.  There is still access to almost all the churchyard either through the lychgate in London Road or the double gate in Norreys Avenue. The memorials by The Cornerstone and by the vestry door can be accessed by arrangement with the Parish office.
