Herschel Halo infra-red heating chandelier for All Saints Church, Turkdean

1st June, 2024
We have now received the Faculty from the Diocese authorising us to install two new Herschel 7800W infrared heating chandeliers, hopefully in time for the Winter – so now we just have to raise £20,000.

Since the removal of the rood screen and the re-joining of Chancel and Nave, more of our congregation now sit in the Nave and these infra-red heaters will effectively heat the congregation without having to heat the whole volume of the Nave space, thus helping to fulfill the churches “net zero” ambitions.

The Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust visited All Saints Church Turkdean in April 2024 to hear the bells recently repaired with their very generous assistance.

24th June, 2024
After a VERY successful evening of fund-raising at our Floral Choral service we are delighted to be able to announce that we have now raised £13,226 of our £20,000 target for the new infra-red heating chandeliers!
