In 2005, St. Hugh’s formed a ‘Leadership Team’ following the Benedictine model but this grew into the ‘Church Council’ in 2011 with the priest appointing members but with one third up for change each year and an obligatory year break after two terms of three years being served.  This is to encourage more involvement by more of the congregation and to prepare for the final step of becoming a PCC.



For the past couple of years the church has undertaken major “fabric” repairs/improvements. The most argent was the re-wiring of the church and the removal of the ceiling to allow lighting installation. Also new radiators were fitted. This work required dedicated fundraising and moving services in to the hall while the work was done. 





We followed this by raising funds for a church bell which along with the new notice board were dedicated by Bishop Pete recently. The bell rings 5 times a day as a witness to the Benedictine model of prayer and with new exterior lighting the church is more visible.
