Work has begun on the new access path at St Nicholas Tackley.
Local contractor Charles Hoare, and Steeple architect David Stewart are helping us create a new way in to our wonderful church in Tackley - a way that will help all those who struggle with the steps we have always had.
It starts just inside the Lychgate, and ends with a platform level with the North door of the church. There will be an inscription on the floor as people arrive at the church, a line from a hymn: "Visit us with thy salvation". We hope people will see this both as a prayer that God will bless everyone who enters into our place of worship, and also as an invitation that everyone who comes and joins us should bring their gifts, their faith, their lives to make our community a better place.
The path is being built after a generous gift. During the work, the church yard is looking a bit like a building site, and we do apologise to those coming up to the church during this period. Please bear with us; all will be done soon.
