Team DeCrypt take to the sky………

Jess and Nicola will be taking to the sky (almost!) on Friday 29 June as we take a trip

on the Giant Zip Wire to raise funds.

The Giant Zip Wire is an 1100 feet-long wire which will be suspended from one end of

Northgate Street to just past St Mary de Crypt. Brought to the city by the Gloucester Business

Improvement District (BID), this will be an amazing opportunity to raise money for the project.

If you would like to sponsor Jess and Nicola please click on the button.  Thank You.

Welcome to Discover DeCrypt

Discover DeCrypt is the project to regenerate the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolrooms bringing them back into full use as a place of worship, a community hub and a venue for art, culture and learning, open and accessible to all.

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Croft Building and Conservation Ltd as principal contractor to carry out the 12 month programme of restoration on the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolroom. Croft have moved onto site and work is expected to continue until early 2019 with a projected opening date of March 2019. This is an important milestone in the life of the project which we are very excited to have reached!

Croft is one of the UK's leading building conservation specialist contractors, based in the Midlands and surrounding areas, employing over 80 craftspeople in traditional methods of construction. They are committed to running apprenticeships teaching traditional building craft skills to future generations. A number of local young people will benefit from the appointment of Croft through engagement in apprenticeships during the works, an aspect particularly important to Discover DeCrypt.

A message from Canon Nikki Arthy, Rector of St Mary de Crypt and chair of the trustees of Discover DeCrypt CIO…
