Welcome to Project Newton

A Renewal Project for the Church and Community of East Harptree

Project Newton is a community-led project to allow all visitors better to appreciate the special features and heritage of St Laurence Church, East Harptree.

The work will deliver urgent repairs needed to the tower, bells, Chancel, wall paintings, Newton Monument (after which the project is named), and stained glass.

It will also deliver opportunities for increased engagement across our community, including safe use of the church building by East Harptree C of E Primary School and other local organisations.

This website will help you find out more about the Newton project, how you can get involved, and keep up with the latest project updates.
