Hello, I am Gemma Smith and I am the Heritage Officer for the Old Chapel. This blog will provide regular updates on what’s happening with the project. Currently, the renovation is still being undertaken, but it is progressing well and we hope to have the Old Chapel open in Spring 2013.
The Old Chapel will be used by Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School. They will use it for assemblies, prayer, liturgy, reflection and also different aspects of the curriculum such as RE, Music and Drama.
It will be open two weekends a month in line with other heritage attractions in Upminster such as the Windmill and the Upminster Tithe Barn Museum of Nostalgia. There will be temporary exhibitions, open days and family events. The Upcoming Events section of this website will be kept up to date with what’s going on.
