FITTING OUT ST ANDREW'S FOR ALL

From a pop-up café to a picnic concert, from a moving performance of Faure’s Requiem to the 60’s and 70’s pop rhythm of Teresa and Friends, St Andrew’s Church Thursford have hosted 8 amazing and well attended performances so far this year.

Quite an achievement for a church with no toilet, no kitchen, none of the facilities one would expect for a comfortable evening out.

Hopefully that will soon change. Plans have been prepared to bring the church building more into line with today’s expectations. They include a disabled friendly WC with the installation of mains water supply and septic tank. A small kitchen servery will be ‘hidden’ within decorative cupboards at the back of the church and a new lobby area installed.

“Back in 2011 the roof was leaking, the electrical supply was in a dangerous state and turned off, we had no heating and no lighting. Today, with the endless help of the community and support from generous grant authorities, the building is weather-tight, heated and beautifully revealed under new lighting.” Says Church Warden Steve Yerby.

“Once the funds have been raised, we are really looking forward to taking the next big step and making the church building a true community hub for the village, the surrounding area and all our visitors.”

Keep an eye out for fund raising events!
