Thank you for visiting the web site for St Giles’ Church.
This lovely grade 1 listed building, which lies at the heart of Cropwell Bishop, will shortly celebrate its 800th birthday. However 800 years of history brings problems as well as celebrations.
St Giles’ had already been placed on English Heritage’s “at risk” register, when new cracks emerged in the arch between the chancel and the nave just before Christmas 2013.
Sadly, as the building was deemed unsafe, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) was forced to close St Giles’ doors over the festive period for the first time in living memory. Installation of ugly scaffolding and extensive shoring has enabled us to re-open our doors, but church use is severely restricted and we cannot leave the church open as we would wish to visitors and villagers.
Please read our brochure Village Appeal Leaflet 2014 for further information.
Now we need to raise £80,000 for repairs and improvements – just £100 for each year of life of our parish church! Perhaps you would like to sponsor a year for a donation of £100?
