3 churches rooted in Christ, growing together, transforming communities
St Margaret's Tower Project
Restoring the joy of St Margaret’s —the power of dreams
Our project had building-related goals – restoring the brick-work, staircase, bells & clock – and also educational ones. The Tower Project not only involved heritage goals, but also a two-year programme of events to provide opportunities for our local community to learn about this aspect of their heritage. We involved local schools and synagogues and offering hand-bell ringing, cheese & wine evenings, a visit to the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, and a heritage trail around the church
Collection in aid of access works
to the tower roof
Our next project is to improve the access from the top of our spiral staircase to the roof so that we can offer tower tours to the roof in future. If you would like to help with the fund-raising, please contact us. Gift Aid envelopes are available for those who would like us to recover any tax they’ve paid on their income to swell the fund still further.
There’s a much better way of keeping fit. It doesn’t cost anything – and there are a lot of value-added features as well!
You are praising God and “making a joyful noise unto the Lord.”
You are evangelising – raising the profile of the Christian faith in a community that knows little of Christianity or traditional English culture.
You make new friends as you build teamwork together.
You are learning a new skill that you can use in any church in the country — and even overseas.
You are developing eye-body coordination
You are time-travelling: living out and conserving an ancient tradition that could easily be lost with the passing of the years.
You can still almost smell the smoke and the acrid vapours as the molten metal cooled in the huge mould s in the ground.
