Church Tower Restoration
We are delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund has agreed to largely fund urgent work on the church tower. FOSMA continue to work hard to show our support as a community for this project with assistance from the grants which the PCC have in hand.
Work for the project is reaching its completion although it is now unlikely for everything to be finished until the end of May. The Stone Edge team continue to work hard to complete the final vital repairs to the stonework. Meanwhile if you gaze up at the tower, much of the scaffolding has now been removed so yet more of the wonderful work which has been going on is revealed. Take a good look at the new parapet stonework and also the fabulous bat gargoyle and the owl grotesque. The stone work is amazing and you can even see the feathered detail of the owl when you look up from the ground. The refurbished golden cockerel has looked very glorious in the recent sunshine and the restored clock faces are really splendid. Also continue to look out for some interesting repair work which is to be carried out to the gable apex and Window 21.

Living God, help us to proclaim the Gospel not just through words, but through deeds -
through what we say, what we do and who we are.
Take what we are and make us what we long to be,
so that others, when they meet us, may meet also with Christ
and know his living presence for themselves. AMEN
