The church of St Peter & St Paul at Burgh-le-Marsh is set to reopen its doors for worship this Sunday (6th May 2018).

The church has been closed for the past six months to allow for major repairs to the nave roof, which have included work to treat damage caused by deathwatch beetles and dry rot, and also repairs to the tower and the installation of a new lighting system.

The cost of the project has been over £300,000, with £200,000 provided by the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. In looking forward to the reopening of the church, the Rector, Fr Terry Steele, has commented: “It has been a long and difficult six months having to hold Sunday Mass in our Church school and Evensong in the Methodist Chapel, and with the church being closed over Christmas and Easter.”

Services for this Sunday are Sung Mass & Junior Church at 9.30am and Sung Evensong (BCP) at 6pm. All are welcome to attend.
