Renovation Fund


St Mary’s Cathedral is more than 150 years old. It is a beautiful building but costs a huge amount of money to maintain. Over the past 20 years, a considerable amount of restoration work has been carried out, including major work on both the interior & exterior of the Church, culminating in 2019 in significant repair work being performed on the roof.

This year, the 5-yearly survey of the Cathedral is due to take place, which is certain to produce a long list of refurbishment works which will need attention – add in to the mix the fact that our old and inefficient boiler will not last forever and it is easy to see that significant expenditure will soon be required to maintain and improve the Cathedral complex.

If you would like to contribute to the Renovation Fund, you can make an online donation via Paypal below.

Alternatively, you may wish to make a regular donation by standing order or direct transfer to the Renovation Account – please contact Paul Webster, our Cathedral Finance Officer, for further details.
