Comprehensive Details
External Works
In September 2005, the contractors Chester Masonry Construction Ltd, started work of repair and conversion to the former church building.
Internal Works
A new first floor was inserted. The external walls and the roof were lined with insulation. The blocked doorway just above first floor level between the tower and the body of the church was reopened. A main stair, lift and WC on each floor were installed atth front of the building, with a secondary stair serving fitted into the former vestry at the rear. On the ground floor, an open plan office, the north transept was closed to form a small room for private meetings. A small kitchen was also formed. The whole first floor is open for conferences, meetings, training and social events.

Repair to Weathervane
Some months after completion of the contract to repair the former church, the building was struck by a series of big storms. The main shaft of the weathervane was bent and then the whole vane fell to the ground. Fortunately no-one was injured and only the weathervane itself and part of the guttering were damaged. Parts of the old vane were salvaged, the "bulb" was replaced, and a new stainless steel shaft and shoe were made. These were installed in October 2007 using a "cherry-picker" crane.
