We welcome our 353rd church!
On 24th March, local volunteers, staff and a special celebrity guest, celebrated the vesting of CCT's 353rd church, St Peter's Gamston, Nottinghamshire.
TV's Reverend Kate Bottley of Gogglebox and BBC Radio 2 fame, came along with husband Graham and dog, Buster, to celebrate the vesting. Rev. Kate, who is parish priest in the nearby Retford area of Nottinghamshire, was also presented with a ‘Champer Hamper’ ahead of her Champing™ stay in one of CCT’s churches this summer.
St Peter's is set to undergo a comprehensive programme of essential conservation repair including the complete re-roofing of the nave, chancel and porch, masonry and timber repairs, and conservation of interior fixtures and fittings. The work will cost in the region of £1.3 million, and the church will be closed for two years while repairs are carried out.
