Completion of Roof Works
Parishioners celebrated the completion of major roof works on Dedication Sunday. After months of major repairs to the roof of St John’s Church and following an internal refurbishment, worshippers returned to the Church at a special service conducted by the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral, the Most Revd. Dr. David Ison on Sunday 8th October.
In his sermon, the Dean congratulated the Parish for their hard work and said, “Now is the time for you to rise up and shine as light in your community”.
The roof repairs which started in February this year was due to be completed at the end of July, but was delayed until September due to lateness in the supply of some roofing tiles. The work included replacement of all roofing tiles, repairs of gutters, relaying of lead, improved and new insulation, the service of the belfry, restoration of the Tower and the installation of a roof security alarm.
The Vicar, Prebendary Francis Adu-Boachie would like to thank the Buildings Team, the members of the Church Council and the congregation for their commitment, patience and financial support for the Parish during the repairs works and said their faithfulness should now be translated to service to the community.
Speaking about the finances of the project he once again acknowledged the substantial contribution from the Listed Places for Worship Roof Repair Fund, saying that without their significant funding this work would have been impossible.
The congregation should be proud of what they have achieved. With this work and other structural work done few years ago, we can be sure that this building can last for another hundred years and future generations will appreciate it.
Jubilant Parishioners are glad to be worshipping in the Church again. They are confident that they can now enjoy the comfort of the refurbished building without rain falling through the nave and in different parts of the building.
Images of the different stages of the work can be found in the gallery.
