Barn Chapel Appeal

Help us to restore The Barn Chapel to its original purpose: to provide a place of calm, wellbeing, quiet and prayer in a busy world

The Barn Chapel is a unique and much-valued place of stillness and peace. Built in typical rural Norfolk style, it retains an atmosphere of simplicity. It is a place of welcome for religious and non-religious pilgrims and visitors alike, and is one of the Shrine’s most loved buildings.’ - Father Kevin Smith


For many pilgrims and visitors to the Shrine, the Barn Chapel offers a quiet, intimate space, where people can go to ‘escape the crowds’ and reflect.

The Shrine team has noticed with increasing concern that damp levels in the Barn Chapel are rising and sadly it is now not fit for purpose. We want to undertake major renovation work to the building and restore it for use by both current and future generations of visitors.


Our fundraising target is £130,000. We are delighted to have received several pledges of support already, and have now reached 65% of this amount.

Please help us to raise the remaining £45,500, so that we can commit to the building works and restore the Barn Chapel and make it fit for purpose once more.
