Sunday School Stories

Help us to uncover our lost heritage and reveal a hidden space for new community use.

The Sunday School is a space you may not know. Rarely open to the public it was built in 1877, is Grade II* listed and is on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register.

Sunday School Stories is the first phase in a strategic and illuminating programme of building works that will create accessible, dedicated community spaces for cultural activity, ideas sharing and participative events.

It also arrests decay and in parallel will reveal the lives and social impact of nonconformists, dissenters and early liberals at the Union Chapel.

Why the Sunday School and why now? The original roof has reached the end of its life, tiles are falling on the streets. Brickwork is failing, electrics and plumbing are in urgent need of upgrading. But it’s more than a room we are trying to save it’s a whole collection of fascinating histories that are the key to new opportunities and ways to become involved with this much loved building.

We need to raise £1,300,000 to realise the wonderful potential of this space.
