Repairs to All Saints' Parish Church, Leamington Spa
The costs to carry out a comprehensive repair of this magnificent building have been professionally assessed. The essential repairs will cost roughly£8m. The work will have to be phased over a number of years with several grant applications and we will also need to raise significant sums ourselves. This is a huge challenge and we are working with others in the town in a newly-established Friends group to increase the interest in and support for the building. Meanwhile smaller repairs have to continue, and are carried out as funds permit.
If you would like to support the repair of this church, please contact us to ask for details or make a donation, or become a Friend. Legacy income is also very much appreciated as we strive to keep the building in a good state of repair. We'd be most grateful for any assistance, large or small. Working together, we can repair this widely-used building and safeguard its future. Thank you.
The South Aisle/Baptistry Roof
We were hugely relieved to be able to re-slate this troublesome, leaky roof during 2016. It's transformed that area of the church as it's no longer prone to frequent, damaging water entry. The £150,000 project was funded by grants from the one-off National Heritage Memorial Fund Roof Repair Fund, the Listed Places of Worship VAT scheme, the Garfield Weston Foundation, Coventry & Warwickshire Historic Churches Trust, and Allchurches Trust.
The Church Clock
The overhaul of the clock mechanism and installation of an auto-winder was completed in early 2017, thanks to the generosity of grant aid from Royal Leamington Spa Town Council and Love Leamington, support from The Leamington Society, and numerous individual donations. We are most grateful to everyone who contributed to the appeal.
The Lady Chapel
The Royal Leamington Spa Conservation Trust awarded £10,000 back in 2015, enabling us to re-plaster and redecorate the walls of the Lady Chapel. Further funding was found to glaze in the West end of the chapel, and to improve the heating. We now have a chapel which is warm and quiet enough to use comfortably for small services and private prayer.
