To protect this rich history for the future and enable this incredible building to remain as one of the jewels in King's Lynn's crown, a major fund raising campaign by the CCT, Friends and local people has resulted in a grant from the HLF and various other organizations to fund  vital restoration work and modernisation, costing over £2.7 million to complete. After 18 months of work the Chapel was reopened in September 2015.

The Chapel is still a consecrated and occasional services and some local funerals are still held. It is also in regular use for concerts, exhibitions, receptions, meetings and workshops. The modernisation work has provide better space and facilities for these events.More details can be found on the CCT website at ( URL)

In tandem with the restoration a seperate campaign to rehang the ring of eight bells was successful in raising another HLF and other grants.The bells having been rehung in August 2015 we are now having regular ringing and have enjoyed visits from other tower teams. Practice nights are being held on the third Wednesday of the month at 1930 hrs.More details about our bells and ringing in Kings Lynn can be found under Bells
