Can you Help the Dome of Home get Funding?


Saints Peter, Paul & St Philomena’s Church (nicknamed The Dome of Home) is seeking lottery funding to complete its roof restoration

 The Church already has a great track record in completing three successful Lottery Funded (HLF) projects. This next project focusses on remedial works on the Dome itself, in a project worth over £500,000.

But if you live near New Brighton or in the wider Wirral area, they need your help.

They have produced a community survey to help them make a good Second Round Application to win a substantial HLF Heritage Grant. The survey closes 30 Dec 2018.

Lottery funded projects don’t just mean good quality restoration work, successful projects include outstanding activities to engage the community. This year, The Dome has already won the Marsh Award for Innovative Church Projects, for its World War II Audio Tour for schools.

Other free of charge lottery funded activities which could come from this cash injection might include:

  • Extending successful primary visits to secondary schools
  • Making digital copies of photos producing a ‘Reflection Book’ helping housebound and isolated reconnect with personal heritage
  • Making an Interactive Photo Album to record heritage for future generations;
  • Developing an accessible Community Peace Garden.

If you can help go to: or arrange a home appointment by phoning 07770 266679 or emailing

As a big ‘THANK YOU’ for completing this survey, you will be entered into their free prize draw to win £50 on 6th January 2019.
