In the meantime, services are being held at the nearby community hall, and the congregation have been based their over the Christmas period. It’s only a temporary measure, but everyone is extremely keen to see the church heating system up and running as soon as possible. If you would like to help, please feel free to visit the church to make your donation.
St John the Evangelist Church in Knypersley has been forced to close over winter because it’s simply too cold to preach in, according to the Reverend Darren Fraser. The old local church’s heating system has finally given up after years of creaking and banging, so it’s time to have a complete overhaul.
The project has been estimated to cost around £40,000 so fundraising has already begun to try and reach their target. The Reverend has called upon the local community to help out, but fears that it could take many years to raise the required capital.
