On Boxing Day 2015 Cumbria suffered one of its worst floods on record.
St. Michael’s on the Wyre is a primary school in Lancashire with 128 pupils. In December 2015, they experienced severe flooding causing damage to their classrooms.
When flooding strikes, it’s not just the damp that can ruin the contents of your home. The sheer force of the water can move and destroy furniture too.
For all the devastation suffered by churches in bad weather, our expertise and understanding of the role churches play in their communities shows that flooded churches can recover and thrive.
