THE OCTAGON PROJECT

10th OCTOBER UPDATE

We wanted to share this lovely picture of the original St John the Baptist window in its new home in the Octagon - it truly does reflect our vision for the future, whilst always being mindful of the culture and heritage of St Mary's. Doesn't it look marvellous?

JANUARY 2020 UPDATE

THANKS TO YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT, WE ARE ABOUT TO START BUILDING!!

We have now raised the princely sum of £360,000, with your help and support!

Now that we have all the necessary funds, along with planning permission from MVDC and the Diocese, we can start to build our architecturally designed Octagon Extension to St Mary's Church in Headley in the next few weeks, to provide a meeting room, kitchen facilities, toilets and storage for this fine Victorian Church, to make it more accessible for both religious functions and for general use by the whole community.

The construction will be carried out by Valley Builders of East Grinstead, who have extensive experience in church related building and repair. It is hoped that building will be completed and available for use by the end of 2020.

May we take this opportunity to thank you all for your generous support - and we will be sure to keep you up to date with the construction process and invite you to the opening celebrations in due course !
