Building Project


It is our vision for All Saints’ to be restored and transformed into a flexible worship space, with community use during the week and a vibrant, active and worshipping congregation on Sundays. Our latest quinquennial report has highlighted major repairs are required for All Saints’ to remain in use as a place of worship.  To do all of the repair work and ensure that All Saints’ is fit for purpose for the future we need to raise funds in the region of £800,000.

We have begun to complete some of the work recommended by the quinquennial report by completing repairs to the Nave roof.

We have begun investigations into the work required to ensure our stained glass windows can be maintained for the future.  In April 2015 we were awarded a grant from the Roof Repair Fund to help fix our chancel, creche, toilet and lychgate roofs.

The latest update in 2020 is that we are currently planning to refurbish the Nave to provide a number of improvements, including new toilets (including  facilities for the disabled so we can comply with current requirements), providing a second fire exit, replacing pews with comfortable chairs (to provide a more flexible space for wider uses for the community), new heating and a new meeting room. These plans have been approved in principle by the Diocese and, as of September 2020, await final agreement to proceed with the work by the Diocesan Chancellor.

Fundraising Events

To do all the repairs and improvements to All Saints’ Church we need to raise a considerable amount of money. 2014 saw the start of our fundraising drive through a number of local events, run by the church and members of our local community.  We held a pledge day for our regular congregations, where £70,000 was pledged for the building works.

We continue to raise funds to fulfil the plan of repairing and reordering All Saints’ to ensure its continued use for the forseeable future. However with COVID-19 all such events have been put on hold. Should you wish to donate to the Building Project specifically or to the general running of our churches, please get in touch via our contact page  

Please see our homepage and our events calendar for more details about specific events.  

Appropiate grants and funding bids are being sought and completed. 

We are planning an appeal to our local community for funds, as we are aware many local people are keen for All Saints’ to remain open and in use as a focus of our community in Ockbrook.
