Restoration Appeal

Our Church is a very special building - it is 160 years old and is a hidden gem of the city.

Grade II* listed with some beautiful art work and important history.

We are proud to be its custodians and are committed to caring for this precious part of Ripon's heritage.

It needs extensive renovation so we need your help. 

Go to the dedicated site below to find out more details about the history and ways to support.
