The roof is sporting handsome green slates  on the south side whcih is the main view of the church and people are noticing it too . We are seeign the chruch as close to the orginal concept  as anyone in the last 100 years. Old slates have been conserved on the north side  and much of  the remaing slate will be recylcled too.

Many thanks to all who have supproted and encouraged us – especially our local donors and major grant funders ‘National Heritage Memorial Fund/ Listed Places of of Roof Repair Fund’,   and  ‘Viridor Credits’

St Hilda’s is a hub for so  many people –  ‘the Undercroft’ is dedicated to community activities all week — you may have voted there in recent elections;  so many people enjoy the  beautiful worship space when attending  events  such as those which happen at the Brockley Max in addition to  Sundays, Baptisms, funerals, weddings, and special Christmas services. We host school visits and assemblies too.
