Roof & Gables Update
 
22 March 2017
A Roof and Gables Repair Update.

The challenges presented in providing repair funds have been substantial.
After raising money and completing the work on the east end the building, focus shifts towards how the work on the west end might be successfully accomplished.

Having been awarded listed building status has meant that the church can now apply for money from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
This is a government initiative that allows places of worship, with listed status, to present a case where they will consider giving a grant for a large percentage of the work.
Along with the money raised locally, itís hoped that the HLF will review all our evidence of need and allow a substantial grant in support of the repairs.

A file of evidence will shortly be submitted to the HLF and, if successful, they would release funding during the following 2 years.
Regardless of the outcome, St Johnís will still need your support, both actively and financially, to meet the funding requirements of the HLF.
More information will be provided over the coming months.
