Church heritage blog – January update

Full speed ahead for New Year activities at St. Paul’s Church…

Update on Tideway works:

Tideway utility works are currently underway on Crossfield Street and by mid-February the next phase will begin along Coffey Street. The works will take approximately four months and working hours are 8 – 6pm Monday to Friday and 8 – 1pm on Saturday. J Murphys and Sons have been the appointed contractors carrying out these works. For further information or queries contact

While these works are in place vibration monitoring of the church will be organised in order to safeguard and protect the fabric while works are underway. These utility works will provide us with a good indication and measure for the main works that will commence in 2017.

Fundraising plans:

We are aiming to submit an application for the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund and are hoping that this will help us to repair and restore damage to the roof.

We attended an informative HLF workshop on the 27 January at Trinity House, London entitled: ‘structural/monument repairs and better community use of churches’. This will allow us to channel the discussions we are now having and would like to progress in order to formulate a strong project.
