Maidstone’s All Saints Church has launched an appeal to raise money for urgent roof repair work.

In September the campaign was given a £352,000 boost from the Culture Recovery Fund and now needs £130,000 for match-funding.

Five of the church’s six roofs have already been repaired and once the target is reached, work on the final roof can begin.

Priest in Charge, The Revd John Richardson, said: “All Saints church is the spiritual heart of the town and is steeped in history.

“We welcome everyone from across the town, and indeed county, but we have had to close part of the building until this essential work is carried out.

“Historic England’s incredible grant has given our appeal such momentum and we are truly thankful for their generosity. 

“It is now up to us to raise the additional £130,000 needed so we can continue to be at the heart of Maidstone, supporting the town and sharing our lives together.”
