FPPC's Round Two application to the HLF for the restoration and rejuvenation of Portaferry Presbyterian Church has been successful! Along with funding from the Wolfson Foundation, Ulster Garden Villages, the Esmee Mitchel Trust, the TBF Thompson Foundation, the Idlewild Trust and AllChurches Trust plus bequests and donations, almost £1.3m has now been raised.
It is intended that fPPC will assume ownership of the building, subject to appropriate legal approvals, and will, once the building is restored, reopen it as a centre dedicated to the very rich historical and built heritage of the Upper Ards and Portaferry and as a centre dedicated to the heritage of church music in Great Britain and Ireland across all denominations.
The New Quay Singers are now on their summer break after singing Haydn's 'Seven Last Words of Christ' for the Tenebrae Service on Good Friday 29th March. Practices will resume on Wed 11th September.
