Update to Church improvement works – July 3rd 2020

We are delighted that work has resumed at St Petrock’s Church as permitted by the government after a complete halt due to the impact of coronavirus.

There are regular visits made by the church appointed architect to assess the progress and monitor work which is progressing very well and should be complete by the middle of August.

The closed south aisle door has been re-opened and a new door fitted which is completely in character with the existing chancel door. A new smaller vestry is being constructed which allows an accessible toilet to be configured within the old vestry area. A new mains connection has been installed and in the course of this work a new water connection has also been created. A new servery has been constructed off-site and is now delivered and will be installed next week. This will allow gatherings to provide hot drinks and to wash up on site. This is discreet and in keeping with the status of a Listed Grade I historic building. A number of further smaller improvements have been made which will make the church more comfortable for all who visit in the future.

Please be aware that for now the church and churchyard remain closed.

We all look forward to completion of this work and the re-opening of our church for worship and for community purposes as soon as is possible. Full deep cleaning will be necessary on the completion of the building works and we will advise when the church can re-open as soon as possible after that time but we hope that this will be SUNDAY 16th AUGUST.

If you are in need of any support or help whilst our daily routines of life and worship are so disrupted, please do not hesitate to let us know and we will endeavour to assist.

With all good wishes

John Gratton (841490) Churchwarden  Marion Jeffrey (841500) Deputy Churchwarden


The Church continues to be alive and active, but St Petrock’s must remain closed for the time being.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
