Major works completed at St Mary’s Church
After several years of work, St Mary’s Church in Ross-on-Wye is celebrating the completion of major works to the building.
The re-ordering of the church has included the addition of toilets and a kitchen area, a soundproof children’s room, the removal of the Victorian pews and new oak flooring, transforming the interior into a beautiful light open space. Another major phase has been completed this week – a new glass entrance doors and the elimination of the steps allowing wheelchairs easy access through the north porch.
Alongside this work, the Friends of St Mary’s, in partnership with Ross-on-Wye Town Council, has funded the renewal of the church floodlights so that the iconic spire will again be seen as a beacon at night.
A special service of choral evensong will take place on Sunday 25th October at 6pm to give thanks for the work and rededicate the north porch. The service will begin outside, when the floodlights will be switched on and move through the new porch into the church.
If you’d like to join in the celebration please arrive at the churchyard at 6pm for the switch-on of the lights, which will then move inside the church for the service.
Places are limited in church book a seat here.
