Installing Screens and removing North Aisle pews – An Update
We are now consulting with the major church heritage organisations (English Heritage, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, the Victorian Society and the Church Buildings Council) about our proposals for installing screens and removing the remaining North Aisle pews. The next stage will be to consult the Southwark Diocesan Advisory Committee before submitting the formal application for a faculty from the Chancellor for the Diocese of Southwark. All being well this should take place in Spring 2018.
The two Crib Services on Christmas Eve and the special children’s service on Thursday 14 December showed the benefits of having mobile TV monitors in church and also the practical difficulties associated with having fixed pews in the North Aisle as this limits the flexible space available for children’s events and also leads to problems accessing the lady Chapel and St Catherine’s Aisle areas for parents with buggies. These issues are being highlighted in our faculty application consultation.
