The church is one of 70 churches and chapels in England, Wales and Scotland set to benefit from rescue funding of £522,241 from the National Churches Trust, the UK’s church support charity.
“These structural issues have been a concern for the church for many years, and so we are delighted that we can now go ahead with the repairs, which will be our first step towards making the building more available to the community.”
“This will ensure that this historic church remains open and at the service of local people.”
St Peter’s Church in Raunds has received a £20,000 grant to help fund a project that includes underpinning the building and glazing repairs to several windows.
It will form the foundation for later work, including the provision of facilities which will enable the church to be opened up to much wider use.
