In 2019 the Parish Church is 175 years young

 

To celebrate our heritage we will be organising a range of  activities and embarking on the largest renovation and redecoration that we have ever seen.  The first phase, which is now complete has seen £330,000 of surveying, roof and stone repairs, minor re-ordering and a total paint-removal.

 To celebrate our birthday we have been awarded £250K pounds by the Heritage Lottery Fund  (www.hlf.org.uk) for the first of the  phases of works and to fund activities celebrating the Parish’s built heritage.  And we have  been awarded additional grants of £10k by the London Over the Border Fund, £10k from the Essex Churches Trust, and £3.5K by Allchurches Trust.

A further phase of repairs and redecoration is being planned and a further series of funding bids are in the offing to help us complete the works.
