The quinnquennial carried out in 2015 identified urgent repairs were required to the roof and rainwater goods. The cost was a little under £12,000. A LPW grant has been received covering most of the cost.
We were granted a faculty to enable the roof works and electrical improvements to the church to be carried out.
HALL BUILDINGS UPDATE:
Work commenced on the 11th July 2016. We are now providing much improved facilities including:
An accessible toilet, new kitchen, new toilets and modernisation of the hall itself. Completion took place on the 4th November.
We achieved our target of £2,600 for new furniture, thank you to everyone who made this possible. We have opened the west end of the hall with the beautifully designed doors as further generous donations have been received, leaving a small shortfall please help!! Cheques made payable to Wylam St. Oswin's Church PCC.
Currently the Hall Building Fund is insufficient to enable the whole project. Only the new windows remain to be funded. If you are able to donate so we achieve our goal, please contact us: Wylamst.email@example.com
Bell ringers are welcome. New volunteers are asked to contact Andrew. Training will be given.
Are you an organist, a pianist, do you know anyone who is? Could you play for us?
Please get in contact with us if you can help. Thank you.
Our vision is to add a parish room and facilities to the church. However we need to protect the use of the church hall whilst looking ahead at our needs. .
The diocese was approached in 2014 regarding additional land required for the church hall alterations. The Diocesan Registrar was instructed to draw up the various documents. These were received following consent of all the parties involved. This allowed the PCC to move forward with full use of the additional land.
