C/O Rame Conservation Trust
We are pleased to announce that the proposed sale of the Chapel to Rame Conservation Trust has been finalised. Remaining funds will be transferred to the Trust and the Friends of Millbrook Chapel of Rest CIC will be struck off from the Companies House register. This is a great result for the Chapel. RCT have some exciting plans and it will remain in community ownership. Watch out for details of working parties in the near future.
Friends of Millbrook Chapel of Rest was launched in the summer of 2017 following a decision by the Church of England to sell the Chapel. As a group of concerned Millbrook residents we thought this charming building should remain as a community space. We held an Open Day and found that many local people thought the same as us. So, we took advice and formed a Community Interest Company, limited by guarantee. This ceased in July 2023 following the decision to pass ownership to RCT.
Phase One was completed in September 2020. After 3 years of fund raising and negotiation with the Church Commissioners The Friends purchased the Chapel.
Phase Two will see the repair and refurbishment of the Chapel, transforming an old and unused building into a vibrant community asset.
Your support and contributions will enable us to realise our vision. Your generous donation will help fund our mission.
