Why your support matters

Your £25 per annum subscription will add your voice to our growing number of supporters and will add weight to our application for grants, which since 2000, has made possible three phases of significant restoration.

The church is now safe but there is much to do to enhance certain elements, which include significant external and internal features as well as the more mundane. The organ, clock, font, west doors and stonework repairs are all on our list of future projects.

Join us!
