In 2015 All Saints Church was ravaged by fire, which rendered it completely unusable. The fire destroyed the roof and much of its interior, leaving only the main brick structure, but retaining its Grade II* status.
A major project was undertaken to rebuild the church but with some modifications and improvements which will reduce our carbon footprint, improve disabled access, and facilitate greater flexibility for more community events. Our aim is to provide a warm and welcoming building, able to offer services and events that will attract a much more diverse section of the community, particularly families and young people.
The fire instigated a huge public outpouring of grief at the loss of the church which has been at the heart of Fleet since the town’s early beginnings. The PCC and members of the church were heartened by the support received from the community of Fleet.
Having worked with our insurers, architects, surveyor, conservators, building contractors and engineers and, most importantly, the wider community to rebuild this beautiful church, we are delighted that Phase 1 of our rebuilding project is complete and All Saints Church is now open for services.
Phase 2 will involve the building of a community annexe which will house essential amenities, such as toilets, small kitchen facilities and community spaces. This work will start as soon as the funds have been secured.
Everyone is welcome to visit our beautiful church. We are currently open on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 10.00 a.m – 12 noon, as well as for services – please check the Parish Diary.
Events and other fundraising news can be found on our Fundraising Page.
There is also a Photo gallery of the rebuilt church and a Fact File.
