(Chairman – Restoration Committee)
St. Andrew’s Church, Epworth, is notable for it’s Rector Samuel Wesley, who was father to the founder of methodism, John Wesley. Since 1999 a major restoration project has been underway to restore both the exterior and interior of the Church. The interpretive scope formed part of the Phase 5 restoration, and involved the development of welcome signs, a heritage centre, multimedia installation and films, a church and village trail, and community learning projects. Our own role was to develop the brand and visual language, design the welcome signs and the Heritage Centre, and also create two browsing books on a mobile lectern which interpret the interior features of the church.
