St Mary & The Holy Host of Heaven, Cheveley

New Porch, Toilet and Kitchen Appeal

The building has, over many generations, been altered to accommodate the needs of its users. We have long known that we need to provide accessible toilet facilities and a kitchen area to meet modern needs. We have been raising money for several years and this has enabled us to appoint an architect, draw up plans, obtain planning and church permissions. We are now ready to start building!

Our project is a porch extension on the south transept, which will house a fully accessible toilet and a lobby area to help protect the transept door from the weather, thus reducing draughts.

In addition we are taking the opportunity to create a modern kitchenette, to be situated in the south transept, built and installed by local craftsmen. These changes will greatly help to improve the church not only for worship but also for a wider range of community activities. We anticipate the cost of this project will be in the region of £167,000. We are already applying for grants from several sources but we will still need to raise a substantial amount from donations.Extension 2

Please will you help us to fund some of these costs?
