Holy Nativity

More Building updates!

Following on from the big March clear out and the creation of the new church office we’ve been doing even more to improve the back stage facilities here at Holy Nativity. For such a busy and active church, we really struggle for storage, and thanks to the UKSPF grant and some help from community partners it’s been great to see progress on making everything more organised and easy to use. Starting with the vestry – where all the items for…

Funding Update

A lot of our UKSPF funded development project is about the big building project here at Holy Nativity, but at the same time we are still focused on delivering all the amazing activities and community benefits that we already do.

First, with the support of…

In The News!

It’s been a busy time here at Holy Nativity and with everything that’s going on we’ve been in the news! First a report on the start of the new project was published in March and then with our very special VIP visitor to Rock Mass we appeared in The Courier again, as well as in Christianity Magazine.

The funding enables us to have two…

Making Progress With The Building!

It’s been a busy first month for our development manager and a willing bunch of volunteers from the church and the local community! We’ve already had a big clear out, and what was once a storage cupboard and cluttered staircase … Is now a fully functioning church office ! It’s been hard work but we’ve had some fun along the way. We found loads of fascinating artifacts that tell the story of the past 70 years at Holy Nativity and…
