NewsPlease note that Sunday 1st March was the last time that we had our services at St. Catherine's until
July / August as the building is being redeveloped to include toilets, kitchen, storage and revised heating.
While this work is being undertaken the contractors, Bakers of Danbury, will be in possession of the building and all our services will be held at the St. Francis Centre in Linford.
The latest news on the development of St. Catherine's is that the work on the extension and the interior of the building is nearing completion. However we now have permission to go ahead with the re-roofing on the building and after a competitive tendering process, Bakers of Danbury have been awarded the contract and are expected to start work in September. As this roof work is liable to cause a degree of dust etc. entering the building the carpet and seating will not be installed until the new roof is complete. We expect this to be around the end of October. Our current thoughts are that Advent is likely to be the time that we can formally re-dedicate the building. The revised faculty (Diocesan permission) sets a date of June 2017 for the completion of the final phase of the repairs to the building such as the external walls and porch.
The latest information about the development project can be found here. and there are some pictures on our Gallery page.
