St John’s, Yeadon, has received £3,500 from the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust for essential repairs to the church. It is one of 12 in the county to receive a grant from the restoration body.
The money, along with £8,000 raised by the congregation, means roof and gutter repairs at the 171-year-old church can now begin.
Vicar, the Revd Richard Walker, said: “It is a growing church at the heart of the community. These repairs are vital in order to protect the building from further water damage and ensure we can continue to offer a warm, safe and welcoming place to worship.”
