Whitefield Methodist church is a journeying Christian community, open to all, offering hospitality on the way.
Awarded a grant to help fund a project to stabilise the church’s tower, repair corner pinnacles and louvres and carry out repointing work. Once the tower is safe, bell ringing will again be able to take place at the church.
All Saints is a Grade I listed building and is considered to be of exceptional interest. All Saints' Church was built in 1826 to the designs of a then youthful Charles Barry, best known for the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament during the mid-19th century. This was Barry's first commission. It is an early Commissioners' Church built to celebrate the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
The architectural style is gothic revival, and it is rectangular in form with five bays, a canted apse to the east end and a tall tower to the west end. All Saints' can be picked out in the landscape from several miles away. The building is a focus for Christian worship for the local community as well as being of historical and architectural significance.
