Baydon St. Nicholas Church

Church News :-

A plea for support -  The future of the church and building depends on your support.

At an open meeting on the 5th December, around fifty people crammed into the church at least, into the parts not still shrouded in tarpaulins, shielding the area from which lead has been stolen!

Canon Simon Weeden, Rector of the Whitton Team, outlined the current situation with the building. The replacement of the lead will mostly be covered by insurance; however, the cracks in the East wall are widening to the point of urgency because of potential danger, there are problems with the vestry and the South wall, and other areas of the roof and the interior will need attention soon.
Initial estimates are that simply making the building watertight and sound will cost between 100,000 and 200,000!

More information and details will be posted on this page as they become available, but keep an eye on the Whitton Team website http://whittonteam.org.uk
