ChristChurch in Grantham clad in scaffolding as second phase of renovation work gets under way
ChristChurch in Grantham is undergoing phase two of building work.
Costing £180,000, it includes the installation of a ramp for wheelchair users and those who find the steep steps difficult to use at the front of the church, in Finkin Street. Work is also being done on high-level windows and the stonework.
Minister the Rev Jane Campbell said: “It is about being open to the whole community and if people cannot get in at the front that is not being accessible to everyone. This work will keep the church in order for many years to come.”
Phase one of the work provided an upgraded kitchen, resurfaced passageway and improved lighting and access to its hall, improved heating, modern toilets and disabled facilities.
Phase two is due to be completed by the end of October. Access to the hall and back entrance are not affected. Worship is continuing at the usual times.
The church has raised some money through grants but is also asking for public donations.
