Welcome to Christ Church, Dore

It is with great sadness that Christ Church Dore announces the unexpected death of Neil Marchant, our Curate on Friday 10th May. He will be missed by the Church and community alike. Prayers have been said for Neil over the weekend and details of his funeral will be posted as soon as they are confirmed. Our deepest sympathy is with his family and friends as we all mourn his loss. For further information please contact a Church Warden (Richard Knights- wardenrichard@dorechurch.org.uk or Alison Saxton- wardenalison@dorechurch.org.uk).

Church Hall

The Parish Church Council (PCC) met on 12th February to review comments, questions and suggestions which were received, both verbally and in written form, at the recent open meeting. They are very grateful for the level of interest in the future of the hall.
The PCC reiterates that they wish to retain the hall for community use.
A working group has been formed which will further evaluate different models of maintaining and developing the hall, and will report back to the PCC by the end of March. Following that we will communicate again, both with those individuals and groups who have expressed interest in the running of the hall, and with the community as a whole. 16th February 2019

Following the departure of our Vicar, Katie in January 2019, we are now in a Vacancy.

Redevelopment News

Our plans for the redevelopment of the building have been through a consultation process with Heritage Agencies and City Planners.
We have taken on board feedback from them, the local community and church members. The Church Council has unanimously voted for and endorsed the plans, and are now applying for a Faculty (permission for the building work to go ahead)

Our Architect is John Cunnington, of Walker Cunnington Architects

Members of the Redevelopment Team meet regularly with John to shape the Plans in the light of feedback and advice from the Heritage Agencies, and the Diocesan Advisory Committee.

Pledges of financial support continue to build up - thank you to all who have given to this project
