SUNDAY SCHOOL AT HOME

 
Our Sunday school is currently not meeting, but we will provide sheets and a take away bag (with craft and snack) to occupy children during the service, and we will also try to involve them a bit in the services.
There is, however, an area for small children in the chapter room (the room next to the church), but they need to be accompanied and we ask you to bring toys along with you.

THE RESTORATION CHALLENGE
The restored west end of the Church. Work was done in 2018 with funds from the City Restoration Programme
Regrettably we did not receive funding from the City subsidy fund for works on the roof in 2021. However, following a meeting organised by the Patriarchate with St Andrew's and the Department of Culture and Heritage, we have been assured of the Patriarchate's support, that we are still in the City Programme, and that we can resubmit plans for funds for work to be done on the roof in 2022.

Our task for this year is therefore to raise funds for the design projects and architects' drawings for both the church interior and parsonage. These are required before we can do any further actual works. Last year, because of COVID, we did not even attempt to fundraise, and our target for this year is $135000.
