Many parts of the church fabric are now in need of urgent repair or replacement.
The time has come when we in our turn, to safeguard St James Church for future generations
must make the effort of restoring or repairing these parts of the building.
Appeal For Donations and Gifts. If you can or would like to help St James Church
with a donation or gift towards the cost of these repairs please contact.
Church Wardens :- Mrs Jill Goodman. Mr Peter Stiling via firstname.lastname@example.org
Glazing. Windows are sagging caused by the lead-work softening and wires failing.
Roof & Guttering. Phased repair or replacement of parts of the roof is planned,
along side guttering and flashing repairs. The integral Church hall, used by the
community has recently had a new roof lining.
Brickwork. Extensive damage to brickwork due to age and the urban environment must
be addressed. Soft sandstone is now spalling rapidly and needs to be addressed.
The Tower. The tower needs re-pointing as erosion to the brickwork joints in the
buttresses and general brickwork is showing, and water ingress through the east
wall of the chancel has become a priority.
