Plans for the £100,000 redevelopment of the church vestibule have been approved by the Church Council and Circuit meetings,. The Circuit have also agreed to contribute £20,000 towards the scheme. The funding plan is to raise a third from our own church members, a third from other Methodist sources such as Circuit and District funds and a third from other grant-awarding bodies.

Brochures of the scheme are now available in the church vestibule or from the church office. To see it now, click here.
