A major refurbishment of a Brean church began this week.
The £50,000 scheme at St Bridget’s Church, in Church Road, includes significant repairs to the roof of the grade-II listed building.
The 13th-century church will remain boarded up until May while the works are completed.
Reverend Jonathan Philpott said: “Every church building must be inspected by an architect every five years, and our latest inspection flagged up that the church needs a number of repairs.
“There are significant problems with the roof and other issues inside, which need to be rectified.
You may also want to watch:
“Scaffolding has gone up around the building, and the hoardings are required for health and safety reasons.”
He added: “We have been doing a lot of work to pay for the works, and local parishioners have been helping, but we are very keen to receive local financial support as well.
