Work to install a new access toilet at St John’s will be completed shortly. Following on from the installation of the toilet necessary alterations to the vestry area will be made and vestry furniture will be designed and constructed by a local carpenter. The church will be open for services but closed at other times whilst work is in progress. We believe that the project will help bring our building into line with modern expectations and make coming to the church more comfortable! We do apologise for any disruption that may be caused during the project. If you have any queries about the project please speak to Jenny Robinson or the vicar.
