Easter 2022 update. With removal of most of the temporary internal screening, Canon Philip writes: 'at last after about 180 years we can now capture the vision of the architect in 1841 of the completed church. Obviously there is much more work to be completed, but the opened north aisle gives us that glimpse.'

Construction of phase 2 commenced in August 2020 following many years of detailed planning and the phase 1 renovations. Phase 2 will provide more seating for our congregation and visitors; improved external and internal access; meeting and other facilities in the crypt, many other updates to latest standards, inc insulation, low energy lighting, reduced maintenance costs, etc. Progress has been slowed by Covid 19 but is well advanced. Principal contractors are S.J. Quick and Sons Ltd of Crowlas, with many local skilled craftsmen, trades and suppliers. note: Phase 1 completed in 2018 for the 175th anniversary of the church (Gallery)
