As part of the restoration we are seeking funding from organisations and from friends and family of the parish.

The total project cost is $165,000. This sum covers installing new wiring for lighting and heating, restoration of the stain glass window and replacement of other windows within the church. Replacement of any damaged timber and painting the exterior of the building including the roof.  Interior woodwork including walls, pews and altar rails restored and/or cleaned, and if sufficient funding, it is hoped to also replace the carpet.

Donations have been growing; and funding has been applied for with a successful grant received from the Lotteries Commission $80,500 to date. 

The goal is to start the project either late 2019 or early 2020. Please help us to move towards a successful conclusion in restoring this beautiful community church to Belfast, Christchurch.
