Christ Church Community Trust’s purpose is to preserve the Grade II-listed church building and its gardens. From 2023, the Trust’s focus is a major campaign to raise funds for urgent stonework repairs to the tower and spire. These repairs are essential for keeping the church and its gardens open.
A routine inspection in May 2021 revealed that the tower would need major work within five years in order to guarantee continued use of the building and gardens. Following a further inspection of the tower in November 2023, a number of loose pieces of stonework have been removed. Although the immediate risk has been mitigated, the garden has been closed as a precaution until the tower can be made safe.
Christ Church has engaged an experienced specialist conservation architect, ARTArchitects, to oversee this work.
We anticipate the cost of this work to be around £850,000. The Trust are taking the lead on fundraising.
