Barrowden Church Development Project. Bulletin No.2.

Barrowden Church closed for worship on 10 September.  The pews have been removed and all sold locally. The church has been cleared, valuables stored and the space prepared for the builders.

  • The Builders begin work on Monday 1st October at 8.30 am. The church and churchyard then become a building site under the responsibility of the builder, WW Brown and Sons.
  • Access to the churchyard will then be limited or occasionally prohibited to visitors, depending upon the building work currently underway.  If you wish to visit the graves or pass through the gates to walk your dog please phone the builders beforehand if at all possible to avoid disappointment.  The number is 01858 465353.
  • It is anticipated that the building work will be completed by 3 May 2019. Until that time these restrictions will apply for the security of the site and the safety of us all.

Now that the pews have been taken out we can begin to see what an inspiring and flexible new space will be created

Thank you for your concern and patience in this matter.

Christopher Armstrong.

Priest-in-Charge
