St Lawrence Church Restoration Project

We are delighted that our application to The National Churches Trust has resulted in a grant of £10,000 to St Lawrence Church, as a contribution to the essential repair of the nave roof and restore decorative stonework around the door on the South side of the church.

The grant recognised the hard work and fundraising already undertaken by the village and has affirmed the efforts everyone is making.

In their announcement, The National Churches Trust said:-

The National Churches Trust is delighted to support St Lawrence’s with a grant towards the Restoration Appeal. The National Churches Trust is the leading national independent body concerned with the protection and welfare of Christian places of worship throughout the UK. We help faith communities maintain and enhance the buildings in their care in practical and innovative ways. It tries to ensure that churches, chapels and meeting houses survive and flourish to help local people and inspire visitors. Rising costs and fundraising are only two of the challenges faced by those managing these unique and special places. The Trust strives to raise public awareness about the challenges that congregations whatever their denomination are facing and works in partnership with national, regional and local organisations to help places of worship so that they can serve their local communities.
