CHILDRENS CHRISTMAS CRAFT WORKSHOP

ST BOTOLPH'S CHURCH, GRIMSTON

 

 

 

 

 


JANUARY 2023 - JUNE 2023

MAJOR BUILDING WORKED - CHURCH CLOSED

ST ANDREW'S, CONGHAM

 

Major work will be starting on the church building in January 2023.  Essential repairs are being carried out on the roof and tower and the roof will be re-tiled. There will also be improvements to the electrical wiring, heating and lighting.  All of this work is needed to ensure that our much loved historic church building is preserved for the future as a place of worship and a resource for all the community.

Unfortunately the building will be closed while this work takes place.  Arrangements are being made for services to take place elsewhere in the benefice.

Access to the churchyard via Church Walk and from the car park off Church Hill will still be open.
