Refurbishing the Church – Phase 1, Part b

So, continuing from our earlier posts about the refurbishing of the church and the sanctuary windows appeal here is a little more information about our plans for church refurbishment. Check back tomorrow for more pictures of work undertaken in church this week, Father Egan assures me that lots of work has taken place!!


So, along with the work already undertaken in terms of lighting, audio system and woodwork there is still much work to complete. Work has already started progressing on the model for the crucifix which will hang from the main arch of the church. The crucifix will have it’s own spot-lights and will depict Out Lord on the Cross on the front, and Our Lady of Sorrows on the back. The crucifix is a key devotional focus in its own right but it should also help to integrate the old and new parts of the church much better. The model should be ready before Christmas and it will then be good to receive people’s comments.


Of course, any refurbishment also includes redecorating and recarpeting. The redecoration is a key task and it’s intended to repaint inside the church. One all the other work is complete, we intend to recarpet the church. Outside the church we’re intending to make it more wheelchair friendly and to refurbish the side door. We’re also discussing the possibility of putting a small canopy over the side entrance and side door to the VWR.


And, finally (for now!) we are seeking the necessary planning permission to demolish the club, to landscape the site and to extend the car park. Once received, the work will begin as soon as is practicable. Part of the garage of the Parish House will be demolished, this is in order to widen the access route to the back. A new entrance to the school will be built around the back with the present side route blocked off.


So, I’m sure you’ll agree there’s much work being undertaken in phase 1. Phase 2 includes the Parish House and phase 3 the Parish Hall. If you’d like any information on how to contribute to this work please email me, and I’ll put you in touch with the relevant people.
