St Wilfrid's Church at Duchy Road in Harrogate.

Taking place at St Wilfrid's Church on Wednesday, April 13 at 7pm, there will be presentations by Nick Rank, from the project's architects, Buttress Architects, and Mike Whittaker, chair of this major project itself.Even though the church, which was designed by Temple Moore, is little more than 100 years old, it was discovered in urgent need of care and refurbishment to avoid it becoming unused.

Team Rector Father Gary Waddington said: “St Wilfrid’s is generally regarded among the clergy as one of the largest and most beautiful churches in the country.”The total cost of the project is more than £2 million.
