St Davids Church – Whitchurch

It has been brought to the attention of SCC that the church is in a sad state of disrepair, in particular the roof, and the building suffers from damp, has no heating, electricity or toilets. It should be a valued community asset, used not only for normal church services but also for community events such as concerts,
historic talks etc. Much work and money is needed to transform the church into a warm and welcoming place, but the initial challenge is to secure funds for general repairs. The SCC Chair is in the process of contacting the Diocesan Office to raise concerns about the decaying state of the church and request that immediate repair funds be allocated. If you have the same concerns, please write to the Diocesan Office, Abergwili, Carmarthen SA31 2JG in support of saving St Davids Church.
