The BIG Church Project
consists of three working Groups, that are focused around the future use and development of the Parish Church. These areas are:
Focusing on the restoration of the fabric of the building. At the moment we are concentrating on raising the money to fix the leaking roof and some dodgy high-level masonry, restore the Georgian plasterwork and add some roof insulation. If you would like to help in any way please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or phone the office on 01258 456260.
Focusing on the internal space and how this is used to the glory of God.
Focusing on our engagement with the wider community & how we can better serve those around us.
We really hope that The BIG Church Project
will be a great opportunity for more people to get involved in securing the future of the building. We are looking at various activities from historical research, to looking at and encouraging wildlife in the churchyard please get in touch if are interested in finding out more.

The Big Church Project - History and Diversity
As part of the Big Church Project we are researching the 'Hidden Stories' of people associated with the church. An example of this is this fascinating blog written by Judith Ford. Read the article here.
