St Andrews Westlands

St Andrew's Westlands New Hall Appeal

Fundraising for Lichfield Diocesan Trust
raised of £5,000 target


Our existing hall is now over 80 years old, and it is becoming increasingly hard to keep it in good condition – hardly surprisingly, as it was only ever designed to be temporary building.
We are keen to continue to have this kind of provision at the heart of the Westlands – as a church and community hub, providing both for church activities and outreach, and for wider community use.

For several years we had been pursuing a plan to replace our existing hall with an extension to the church. However despite gaining the necessary permissions and gathering together the funds that we thought would be needed, a huge escalation in building costs in 2022 made this unaffordable.

We are therefore applying for planning permission for an alternative plan, for a new St Andrew’s hall to be built on the present hall site. Very generous giving, helped by a few external grants, has meant that we have sight of over 90% of the anticipated £626,000 cost – but we are appealing for help to find the remaining approx £55,000. The appeal leaflet, giving more details about this exciting proposal, is downloadable here.
