Coleshill Parish Church celebrates transformation
St Peter and St Paul, Coleshill, Warwickshire have completed the third of four phases to transform their Grade 1 listed building.
Craigmyle Consultant Dr Joel Burden has been working with Reverend Nick Parker and the Coleshill team to support the church’s fundraising efforts.
Reverend Nick Parker said:
Craigmyle’s advice and support has been absolutely critical to us obtaining the necessary funding to transform our building. They’ve helped us tackle this fundraising in logical phases which has enabled the completion of £650,000 of works in four years. During that time our consultant has become an integral and trusted part of the project team, indeed we’ve felt from the outset that they are personally and professionally committed to the fulfilment of our vision.
Our Grade 1 listed building is duly transformed in terms of its new facilities and we are opening up our heritage to new audiences. Over time we expect local community usage of the church to grow considerably and we will be welcoming many more visitors to this special place. Having gained enormously in confidence, the church community is now looking forward to fundraising for the final phase of this worthwhile project. I heartily recommend Craigmyle’s services to other churches and organisations who are thinking of embarking on similar sorts of campaigns.
