Sponsor A Tile



The Memorial Tiles will be part of the Church roof, which will be the last section of the roof to be completed. We therefore have until the middle of March for requests for Memorial Tiles. Closing date now 31st March.

The response has been really amazing, with requests coming from the community, Church members who have moved, and many of todays congregation.

During these extremely difficult times many are remembering past relatives and friends and looking to a new future within our new Church and a society that may become more responsible for the well being of God’s world and its people.

Imagine attending services in our new Church and looking to the roof knowing the names and memories of the past and the present generations, together with their messages of faith for the future forming the roof above. Earlier Churches and Chapels kept their best decoration and paintings for the ceilings in the belief their offering would be closer to heaven.

We have an opportunity during the next few weeks to reflect this history by covering our Church roof with tiles reflecting our generation’s love of God.
