Going Underground!
On January 8th, work will commence to connect our new toilet to the main sewer. Contractors have been appointed and permission has been given by West Sussex Highways to close part of the road. The work is anticipated to take less than three weeks. 
Unfortunately West Sussex County Council would not give us permission to close the road sooner as they feared it might affect the trading opportunities for Lindfield shops in the run up to Christmas.
Lets give thanks that we'll soon be able to use our excellent new facilities!

We have called the project ASPIRE because we aspire to repair, renew, refurbish and extend our buildings to meet the needs of current and future generations. The various works are taking place between now and the end of 2018. 
 
The current phase is the re-ordering of the church, including removal of pews, redevelopment of the vestries to include an accessible toilet, multi-use room and flower preparation and utility area. 
 


 The provisional plan to the church includes the following elements:

  • Improved entrance at the south porch, together with new enhanced entrance at the west door.
  • A new purpose-designed and moveable central dais area for leading worship.
  • Renewal and lightening of the floor.
  • Repair treatment to stained glass windows and redecoration throughout.
  • Replacement of most pews with individual seats allowing flexible arrangements.
  • Enlarged welcome and circulation area at the back of the Church
  • Removal of existing choir stalls and replacement with moveable choir seating.
  • Relocation of the Kempe screen from the rear of the Church to underneath the west tower.
  • Retention of the memorial chapel, reredos and other historic features.
  • Upgrades to the heating, lighting, audio visual and electrical services.
