St Philip and St James’s church, Grafton Road, Cheltenham, GL50 2DD


Where will we worship when proposed building work is happening?


As you will know the proposed reordering will require us to vacate Church whilst it is ongoing.  Nick is very aware that this is a matter of real concern and has been exploring the possibility of us worshipping in Cheltenham College chapel on Sunday mornings.  The Chaplain and Head of the school are keen to host us, there are small rooms where JAM activities could take place, there is a Tuck shop where we could have tea and coffee after the service and ample parking.  At their meeting this week the Church Council endorsed this idea and conversations with the College are ongoing.  If reordering plans proceed as outlined this arrangement might begin in the autumn of 2016.  At our service next week, Nick will offer an update on plans and there will be a time for questions and conversation after the service. Please let Nick, Hazel or Steve know your thoughts on this proposal.
