CHURCH REFURBISHMENT PROJECT
Unfortunately there have been further delays in completion of our church refurbishment project on account of issues found in the main structure of the foyer. This has resulted in new steel structure being designed and installed. Most major issues have now been resolved and the project is progressing well. The next major works relate to roof replacement which is expected to be undertaken in the next two weeks. The Builder and Architect has advised us of a new completion date of end August 2018 subject to normal weather conditions. We are sorry for the inconvenience this delay is causing and thank you for your patience. If there are any further changes to the timetable we will keep parishioners updated.
