St. James’ Church is now open for Sunday worship following the second phase of restoration work to the interior of the church building. The main part of this work replaced plasterwork which has been significantly damaged over the years by damp and modern repair and to restore the arcade’s stonework. The is open again during daylight hours on all days of the week.
Planning is going ahead to improve the entrance to the church with better disabled access in the porch and reduce the loss of heat through the door. After this we need to raise significant funds to install a new heating system. The current blown-air system is now obsolete and inefficient and will be replaced with a more ecologically beneficial system which will also help maintain the fabric of the building.
