LANTERN, SEPULCHRE & STATIONS!
A very big thank you to all those who supported the Lantern/Sepulchre appeal in 2016 and raised just under £25,000 to help with the emergency repairs to the Shrine Church.
We hope that repairs and redecoration of the Sepulchre in the gardens will be undertaken soon. We are very grateful for the £8,000 that pilgrims and visitors have contributed specifically for the restoration of the Sepulchre.
And once again, the Stations of the Cross in the Shrine gardens need urgent attention from the ravages of the weather. We shall be launching a special appeal for this important work very shortly.
You can make a donation online (see below) using a credit or debit card.

Please make cheques payable to WCTA Ltd and write 'Lantern Appeal' on the reverse.
Our fourteenth Station of the Cross in the grounds is the wonderfully evocative tomb, which pilgrims love to enter to contemplate the Lord's burial.
Time has not been kind to this structure and large cracks on the exterior mean that water is getting in and the plaster is being damaged. We are working with contractors to find a solution to making the building watertight, before we can repair the damage and restore the Enid Chadwick mural behind the altar. We were hoping to create a new roof over the structure, but this has proved to be prohibitively expensive. It is hoped that extensive re-rendering will help to keep the original sepulchre safe and secure. If you'd like to support this project please make an online donation below.
