Re-ordering All Saints' Church, Darton
The Church of All Saints', Darton has been almost unaltered through its five hundred year life. The Victorians added pews and choir stalls, the rood screen has been removed, but the building has stood with little change made to its structure in all this time.
What we are now looking to do is to protect that structure for the next stage of the journey of this beautiful church, while at the same time making some alterations to the interior to enable it to better serve the community it has been at the centre of for so long.
We recognise that if the church is to serve its community today, it needs to have proper access for all regardless of age or physical disability, it needs to have adequate accessible toilet facilities, it needs to have space to welcome social gatherings, and it needs to be open for a greater variety of events than it has ever been before. For this reason we are seeking to make this church a destination for concerts and drama performances, for community groups, and for all who wish to use it to find a welcome and a home.
