South Porch gates. Plans and drawings for a beautiful pair of gates have been prepared by our architect and approved by the diocese. These can be seen on the board at the back of the church. We are hoping that a generous donor may be found who will help us meet the cost of the gates. In the past members of the congregation have been very generous with donations for the enhancement of the church building.
