to nurture believers in Jesus Christ
and to serve the community.

The first phase of our reordering project is now almost complete. We now have a completely level access from the south porch into the nave, a flexible space around the font and a gentle slope leading towards the east end of the church. We have some minor adjustments to make to the carpet, and also are considering what is needed in the way of furniture at the back of the church.
An archaeological survey was completed as part of the work. Follow this link to read a copy.
The total cost of this part of project was just over £40,000. Over the many years that we have waited to get started we have built up a ‘Fabric Fund’- a restricted fund which is used for keeping the church in good condition. The proceeds from many of our village fundraising events have helped to build up this fund. Some of this money will be used to pay for the work. We were also successful in obtaining grant funding from the following organisations for which we are most grateful: The Ganzoni Trust; The Mills Charity; Suffolk Historic Churches Trust; The Church of England Centenary Fund.
The second phase will be to add some new doors to the south porch and to repair and open the door opposite our main entrance, in the north wall. The third part of this project is to provide toilet and storage facilities accessible from the north door.
If you would like to contribute financially to any aspect of the work which will improve access and amenity in this ancient building, please get in touch with John Bater at Church Farm. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Kettleburgh PCC’ with an accompanying note to the effect that the donation is specifically for the Fabric Fund. Any taxpayer can gift aid the donation and we can then claim the tax back on it.
