A survey of 2017

Window Repairs

CJL Designs carried out the complete repair of all the cracked panes of glass in the church in August 2017



  • Balanced the care and conservation of the building from Tideway’s early works to the preparatory main works programme.
  • Involved in the negotiation of the APA and coordinated work on window repairs rather than the initially proposed double-glazing.
  • Coordinated all safeguarding measures and baseline monitoring of the building, in preparation for the main Tideway works including organ survey, interior and plasterwork survey, noise/vibration control and monitoring.
  • Appointed an external structural engineer to support on-going work.



Thank you to all our supporters for the grants we received this year for our roof and fabric repairs




  • Awarded grants from the following organisations (Marshall Charity, All Churches Trust, National Churches Trust). Grants will go towards repairing the South East roof and associated water ingress issues.
  • Fundraising initiatives and proposals developed for the larger redevelopment grant. No applications were made, as more consultation was required from the PCC and congregation on the proposed scheme.
