As at 15 October 2020

All external and internal building works have now been completed. The exterior interpretation boards have now been installed and the internal interpretation have also been installed although there is some final preparations to be completed and they are not fully accessible due to Covid-19 and safety precautions in the church.  We can't wait to share the displays with you when we are able to do so. 

Landscaping and the community memorial garden - Veolia Environmental Trust

We are delighted that St Alfege Church has received a grant of just over £39,000 from The Veolia Environmental Trust for soft landscaping and the creation of a community memorial garden as part of its Heart of Greenwich Place and People project.The project includes new planting in both the north and south courtyards, the planting of new and replacement trees, the creation of a community memorial  garden and returfing of the green in the West courtyard.

We will create a community memorial garden in the south courtyard making the area more inviting and accessible to both the congregation and local community.  Rebecca Parrant, Interpretation and Engagement Manager, will be leading on this element of the project which will start later this year.  Rebecca said: " This is an exciting inter- generational project which will involve those who have family connections with the church, local residents and school children as well as our own children's church. Working with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the planting of the new trees, other planting (excluding the community memorial garden) and the returfing of the green will take place in the autumn. Revd Caroline Risdon said: We are very grateful to the Veolia Environmental Trust for making this possible and for enabling us to complete the final part of our project to make St Alfege Church welcoming and accessible for everyone.
