Lighting Project

The lighting in church has remained unchanged for many years, and it is becoming increasingly expensive to operate and maintain. As a example, the main nave lights are positioned at such a height that the only way the lamps can be replaced when they fail (which is often), is by calling in the Fire Brigade with their ladders!

At the request of the PCC, the Friends are embarking on their most ambitious enterprise yet-managing, and part-funding, the renewal of the interior lighting of the church. This will provide a more attractive (and safer!) environment for our many visitors as well as for regular worshippers.

Fund-raising for the project will include a number of social events organized by the Friends, the first of which took place on Saturday 8 August-a very successful “Afternoon Tea” in the Saints, as reported here.
