Pip and Jim's
Heritage Restoration Project


Due to its landmark position on the seafront Pip and Jim’s Church has been exposed
to the salt and storms since 1856 and needs ongoing urgent repairs.

With our major, phased Heritage Restoration Project we want to ensure that this
important and prominent building at the entrance of Ilfracombe Harbour is fit for
multi-purpose use and safe for future generations of our local community.

Thanks to the generosity of so many of you, intensive fundraising and grant funding,
we are very pleased to report that the damage to the stonework and pointing on the
Tower and Nave has now been repaired at a cost of £90,000.

Our next step is to plan and cost the first part of Phase 3: repairing the stained
glass and stonework of our wonderful West window.


We need to raise in the region of £250,000 to start work on Phase 3.
We need your help to save Pip and Jim’s. Thank you.


Our Project:

Phase 1

Secure the safety and future use of the building for the community by making it weatherproof, with urgent repairs to the roof and stonework.
