Restoration Appeal (covers all restoration projects)

We have an ongoing restoration programme which focuses on the other aspects of restoration of the building besides the current Organ Appeal. Money raised helps maintain and develop the Union Chapel; James Cubitt's masterpiece of Gothic architecture saved from demolition in the 1980s. Recent work includes the completion of the first phase of the tower restoration project.
