St Mary's Church Roof Blessing by The Bishop of Reading

Wednesday 10th June 2015

For some time the Churchwardens of St Mary’s Sulhamstead, Dorcas Green and Ros Coulson, have worried about the roof of their 13th Century church. Slipping tiles, and the prospect of imminent roof failure prompted action on a new tiled roof.
Those who have been here before will know that this is not a project to be undertaken lightly.
However, with the aid of a generous grant from a local charity, (Ufton Nervet Fuel Allotment Charity), gifts from local people, and with the assistance of the Greenham Common Trust, the project has come to fruition.
JG Restorations of Swindon worked to a tight timetable, and blessed by good weather, worked around wedding bookings, to the delight and relief of all our brides.
Hundreds of handmade tiles were signed by parishioners, schoolchildren, wedding couples, baptised babies (or their parents), or just passers by. Great fun for the local historian in the years ahead! Just who are Chelsea and Everton?
The roof was blessed by Bishop Andrew on the 10th of June from a vantage point on top of the scaffolding. Bishop Andrew said “The church looks fantastic, and is a visible sign for all to see, of a vibrant Christian presence in this part of Berkshire. The roof will shelter our Christian family for years to come”.
Associate priest Revd Anthony Peabody thanked everyone for their persistence, skill and generosity which made the roof project go smoothly, and which has resulted in a thing of beauty and delight, our new church roof.
