Potential Developments at St. Mary's Church.

STATEMENT REGARDING POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS AT ST.MARY’S CHURCH

 St.Mary’s PCC have begun a process of thinking about how they might use the proceeds from the sale of their former church hall. Our conversations are at an early stage but have revolved around how the church might make creative use of its existing space or potentially expand this. An idea has been put forward about extending into the churchyard and possibly converting the rear of the churchyard into a carpark but this is one of many ideas and it is far too early in the process to make any decisions. 

 Whatever the PCC might wish to do will be subject to both finance and obtaining the relevant permissions. The PCC would also wish to be reassured by specialist surveys that no graves would be affected by any proposed works.

We are very keen to gain the views of as many people as possible and will consult when we have a better understanding of our ideas. We remain committed to preserving the character of our historic church building as well as thinking about how we serve the community in the future.
