RAISE OUR ROOF

The scaffolding is being built up to the level of the upper roof 3 July 2017

The New Church was built during the Second World War to meet the needs of the growing parish of Holy Cross Greenford and has been lovingly worshipped in ever since. 75 years on it is beginning to show its age, and we are now committed to undertake £100,000 of urgent repairs to the west section of the roof, above the main entrance.

Work started on the roof on 19 June 2017 and is expected to be completed at the end of October. The church remains open for worship, but there are restrictions on the use of the car park.

As a congregation we sit together in this wonderful building that has been passed down to us. This campaign asks all who worship under this roof to join together in sharing this work of restoration.

Full details about how you can participate are in the leaflet which is available in church or can be downloaded here. greenfordmagna.files.wordpress.com/…/img258.pdf
