How much do things cost?
This gives you an idea of how much things cost:
INTERNAL PAVING – the natural paving stones are of varying size so difficult to price individually. However, if you include the work to raise the floor and install under-floor heating, you can sponsor a 1m2 area of floor for £100.
ORGAN – there will be over 2461 pipes in the refurbished organ; you can sponsor a single pipe for £20.
PENDANT LAMPS – there will be 25 new fittings in the Nave, Transepts and Tower crossing; you can sponsor each lamp for £1,500.
FLEMISH PENDANT LAMPS – there will be 8 new fittings in the Chancel; you can sponsor each lamp for £3,000.
PORCH LOBBY – the draft lobby in the West Porch includes 19m2 of plain sheet glass; you can sponsor a 1m2 of glazing for £740.
SERVERY – the servery surround, fitments and storage facility will cost around £55,000. If you are interested in supporting part of this as a group fundraising challenge, please contact us as shown below.
TOILETS – the 2 new toilets in the church will cost £45,000 and will feature in a separate social fundraising event in September; however the team will welcome proposals from anyone wanting to sponsor all or part of them.
