The church has two restoration projects under way:
The church roof is urgent need of repair and this will require in excess of £700,000 in total, with some £400,000 needed for the first phase. A temporary repair has been effected on the part that recently started leaking.
The project to refurbish the mechanism for the 8 historic Ewhurst bells and to replace the 2 oldest bells, which date back to the 15th century has now completed successfully.
The Heritage Lottery Fund
awarded £26,300 of funding
(48% of cost) for the bells, plus
£200,000 (51%) towards the cost
of the first stage of the roof repair.
