The outside of St Faith’s building is having an upgrade!
St Faith’s Church is one of most iconic buildings in Lee-on-the-Solent. Built in 1932/33, and battered by 89 years of coastal weather, the exterior of the building is in need of some TLC.
In May and June 2021, there will be scaffolding around St Faith’s while our builders repair the building and make it watertight. We will keep this page updated as the work continues – see below for photos of this work.
Please give towards the cost of this essential maintenance
This building work will cost around £140,000, and St Faith’s is having to fund this ourselves. If you would like to contribute towards this essential work to safeguard this important building, please click below. Thank you!
You can still access St Faith’s every day
While the work is going on, access to the inside of the church won’t be affected. St Faith’s is open every day, 10am to 5pm, for you to take some time to reflect and pray.
We’ll keep this page updated with the building work, so you can see how it’s progressing – and what we find as we do it.
