Latest News: I’m very happy to report that the work to complete the installation of the new sound system was completed on Saturday 20th June and demonstrated to Peter Rowan, who Project Managed the installation for the church. Peter says that the sound is fantastic, and all the way round the church. It looks very good as well, and you really have to search to find the speakers. The old system has also been removed (thanks again to Peter and to John Collacott who helped him). Here at this link are some pictures of Chris Shaw of Alive Church Systems Ltd working on the installation, and of the news system speakers installed on the walls.
The total funding of £26,059 has come from a variety of sources:
PCC funding from funds restricted to facility repair or development – £10,250
A Donation from the Exeter Diocese Rural Church Repair Fund – £2,000
The rest of the funding came from:
St Eustachius’ Bellringers
Morris Bros (Tavistock) Ltd
About the Programme 700:
The St Eustachius Programme 700 is a whole Programme of different Projects for the church, to address essential maintenance as well as modernisation, to meet the current and future needs as both a place of worship and for secular use. Martin Pendle is the Programme Manager, and manages the whole Programme. Each active Project within the Programme has an individual Project Manager. The P700 Steering Group oversees the Programme and individual Projects, and makes recommendations to the Standing Committee and the PCC. The PCC approves the shape of the whole Programme, and each individual Project before money is committed. Click on the links below to learn more about the programme.
