Plans to reorder the inside of our church

We have a wonderful church building that is now over 150 years old and while we gratefully appreciate the beauty of the historic building, we are aware there are some aspects of it which make it less than ideal for ministry in the 21st Century.  Click here to open a comprehensive overview of our plans to reorder the inside of our church, including the plan drawings.  

Consultation with the congregation and local parish community is now complete.
