The Roman Catholic Church of St Michael and St George.
Our Roman Catholic Church in Silver Street, Lyme Regis stands high above the town and its first Mass was said here on 27th August 1837, just 2 years after the foundation stone was laid. Built in the Gothic style, it is an attractive and much loved building with architectural design by E. Goodridge and E. W. Pugin.
Restoration of this beautiful and historic church is about to begin on the exterior, roof and guttering which are fast deteriorating. The church and presbytery are Grade II* Listed which makes maintenance very expensive. We seek funding from our supporters, from national organisations and charities.
The Parish is grateful to Historic England for the substantial award it has made for church restoration through the Culture Recovery Fund. Please click on the following links for more information on the work and on the church itself.
If you would like to donate to the restoration, there is some more information under the ‘Giving’ Tab of this website. There is a link below to ‘Give a Little’, a simple online method of making a donation and another should you want to completer a Bank Standing Order.
Please note: Funds raised by this appeal will create a ‘restricted fund’, and will be accounted for as such. If for some good reason the appeal project cannot be completed or if a surplus arises, the remaining funds will be used for general charitable purposes for the parish.
Our Church in Lyme Regis is part of the RC Parish of The Most Holy Trinity and part of PRCDTR, registered charity number 213227.
