The Next Millennium restoration project is our exciting development programme for St. Pancras’ Old Church. Over the next three years, we will repair the decay to the fabric of our ancient church, renovate it, and enable it to become a Hub for both our established and growing communities. Our mission is to promote the values of a Good Neighbourhood, enabling people to come together to help and support each other. Donate here to support this project and sign up our mailing list to keep up to date.
We successfully raised £21,000 to allow a team of experts to work on our building to discover a hidden Tudor wall and uncover the issues in our building. Substantial movement was found in the south wall of the Nave and Chancel, leading to structural instabilities. We engaged Artarchitects to draw up plans to repair and secure the building. We successfully raised enough money to complete this work in February 2020.
In Phase 2, we achieved our target of raising £70,000 to repair and secure our building, allowing it to continue offering afternoon teas, concerts, lectures, quiet, worship, education, and community. This vital work was completed during the lockdown in the spring of 2021. The longstanding crack in the wall has now been repaired and the large Platt monument stabilised.
End of 2023
With the structure of the church secure, we plan to develop the liturgical space, completely restoring this beautiful church and monuments to make it an excellent site for the Divine Worship and for artistic works. Our building will be an oasis of profound beauty and quiet in the business of central London, an asset to our community, and a work of priceless heritage to pass onto the next generation.

End of 2025
Argent has been chosen to re-develop the St Pancras hospital site next door to the church. This will bring St. Pancras’ Old Church even closer to the local community. We will re-develop our parish room, kitchen and WC to make us a hub for community use, developing our connections with St. Pancras Community Association, We Are Ageing Better, the Horizon Youth Club, and local schools and businesses. We will work to promote the principles of Good Neighbourhood by connecting our established communities to the new communities of the Kings Cross Knoweldge Quarter.
