REPAIRS TO ST. CLEMENT’S CHURCH
The church building was closed for repairs at the beginning of September 2019.
This is because we now have permission to carry out repairs to the church floor, renovations to the spirelet and WC, the installation of a small kitchen and repositioning of the stone font.
We are very excited at the prospect of how the newly refurbished church building will serve the community—it will be a long wait but as the saying goes “Good things are worth waiting for”!
Work will take approximately 6 months. Please pray for this project, that all things go smoothly.
Please contact the church office if you have any queries or concerns about this project. 01202 733390 (mornings). Thank you

St Clement's Church refurbishment:
130 years on…….
… and the outside of the church itself hasn’t changed that much at all. However, we are working hard to make the inside more beautiful, practical and useful, and creating an environment where worship and service can go hand in hand. We are repairing the spirelet that is leaking and the church floor that has, after 130 years, rotted.
As part of this work we are laying a new carpet and creating a space where we can safely serve hot drinks before and after services, funerals, concerts etc., as we exist to serve the local community as well as ourselves.
Would you like to help us? Any donation, however small, to our Building Fund is gratefully received. Just make a cheque out to 'PCC St. Clement’s' and send it to us with a note “For the building fund”.
When we have our grand re-opening in the spring come along and see the difference that you have made! (Put 16 & 17 May 2020 in your diaries.)
Fancy planting a tree in memory of a loved one?
