In December the 125 year old church launched a fundraising campaign, looking for £1.3 million to make vital repairs to the building.

At the time the campaign was launched, The Dean, Fr Jeffrey Downie on behalf of the diocese said work needed to be carried out as soon as possible. He said: “The story of the structural problems of St. Peter and All Souls church in a long one and a known one, but it has reached the point now when it must be resolved.

“We may think here about our own sacred space in this church which is important in our lives and in our community.

“Saving this sacred space will be costly, it will be difficult, it will be disruptive, but it can be done, and it will be done.”

A Justgiving web page has been set up to allow people to donate to the fundraising campaign. For more information visit
