    Story

    We want to fix the roof our church before more damage is done

    Our congregation, our visitors and the people of York need this beautiful church to be saved

    Immediately! The scaffolding is up to support a temporary roof. We are hoping to finish the work by April this year.

    The funding will be used to repair the rafters, stonework and replacing the temporary covering with stainless steel (and not lead which could simply be stolen again). In total we need £350,000 to complete the work that is needed. We are hoping to secure Heritage Lottery and other grant funding as well as individual giving.

      Please don't be concerned if you think that the total donated is not enough so far. Over £2,000 was raised through an earlier crowdfunding page which for technical reasons are not showing on this page!
