After 12 years of fundraising, The Friends Of Lanteglos Church (FOLC) have gathered together enough funds and grants (Approximately £500,000) to start the restoration of St Julitta’s. The major funder for the whole restoration project is The National Lottery Heritage Fund, with a large grant of £231,500. Many other generous grants and donations have been received to make the project possible. We have been blessed with an excellent team of skilled and knowledgable people who have worked together to bring this large project to a successful conclusion.
The whole restoration project also involves the provision of a kitchen (Funded by a generous bequest), a compostable toilet, new tarmac and repair of the bells and windows. These are yet to be funded……
Nevertheless the Church will be ready for:
THE FIRST SERVICE in the restored church will be Remembrance Sunday 10th November with Camelford Town Band
THE FIRST CONCERT will be Mike Silver and Friends on Friday 22nd November at 7.30pm
THE FIRST COMMUNION SERVICE with be on 24th November at 11.15am with Steve Tyrrell at the organ.
MORE DETAILS on these events and other planned events will be posted later

The Bishop of St Germans said:
“I am delighted to see this ambitious project coming to fruition through a combination of local vision, faith, hard work and generosity. Now backed up and supported by the National Lottery. Not only will these works preserve a place of very special quality but they will make it even more accessible and usable for the wider community and all who find their way to this beautiful corner of Cornwall. When these works are completed I look forward once again to visiting this inspiring place of prayer and pilgrimage and encourage you to do the same.”
