St John's Church
The church opposite the school has not had regular services for 5 years, since the heating broke. The small congregation worship elsewhere and although it is still open for weddings and baptisms and funerals, it cannot afford to carry on. The vicar, Rev Simon Woodley, decided that rather than close it, he should offer it to the community to see if they could share the building, as a joint community centre and worship space. Plans have been drawn up to clear the pews and put down a new floor, have a kitchen and meeting rooms, and a glass screen to separate the chancel and the nave. Now the school would also like to use the renewed space for lessons, music groups, assemblies and much more besides. Together the 3 groups - church, school and community, have got to raise £400,000 and get it built by Sept 2015.
