Wanstead Parish has launched a consultation about plans for the future of St Mary’s and Christ Church.

“The Parish is in the final phase of a year-long project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The aims of the project are: to better understand what urgent repairs we need to make over the next five years to our two churches, to improve access, to see how we could make the most difference to our communities, to increase our capacity to do more, and to reduce our carbon footprint… We’re looking for views from the whole wider community,” said a church spokesperson.

The plans include making the churchyard at St Mary’s more accessible, internal changes to the layout of Christ Church and emergency repairs to its spire.

Information boards are on display in both venues and can also be viewed here, with the consultation open until 10 June.
