Pip and Jim's
Heritage Restoration Project


Pip and Jim’s Church needs urgent repairs. Due to its landmark position on the seafront it has been exposed to the salt and storms since 1856 and is now sadly in a bad state of repair.

With our major 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.

The works are phased, with priority given to making the building safe and weatherproof.


We need to raise £167,000 to start work on Phases 1 and 2 in Spring 2022.
Due to people’s generosity, church fundraising and grants, we have so far raised 67% of the costs for Phases 1 and 2. But we still need to find another £56,000.

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.
