The pinnacles: our next project!

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded 16,500 to develop a project to stabilise our pinnacles. We also need to raise more funds, and write a heritage activity plan. All being well, a further grant of 180,000 will part-fund the repair work itself in 2018.

Roof project completed

The final stage of the roof repair project, which fixed a leaky porch roof, is now complete. We are grateful to the Government's Listed Places Of Worship Roof Repair Fund for the grant of 48,900 that covered more than 90% of the project costs.

Friends give 1,500 for restoration work

The Friends have given just over 1,500 of money raised since the launch in May 2015 towards recent restoration work on the church. This supported repointing work on the north wall, necessary to protect the medieval wall paintings on the interior wall.

Conserving the wall paintings: stage 1

Before conservation work could start, we had to stop water getting through the wall behind them. This work was carried out in parallel with the roof repair project, part-funded by grants of 2,500 from Allchurches Trust Ltd and 1,500 from The Friends.

Friends summer concert with the Cadgwith Singers

The Friends of St Breaca Church held a concert in church on the evening of Saturday 13 August 2016. About 80 people came and enjoyed a wonderful performance by the Cadgwith Singers, and almost 300 was raised.

Friends 1st anniversary event: Wednesday 18 May 2016

To mark the first year of The Friends of St Breaca Church, Ann Clegg of the Friends of Godolphin gave a talk on the history of the Godolphin family, many of whom are buried in the church. This was followed by cheese and wine. A good time was had by all.

Free book about our ancient parish

Thanks go to Dave Hayman for pointing out that Revd Coulthard's 'The Story of an Ancient Parish: Breage with Germoe' is available as a free download from Dave says it's an 'excellent read'.
