Unitarian Church, Newington Green, Stoke Newington N16 - Hackney

The church was first erected in 1708 and then partially rebuilt and enlarged in 1860 with Sunday schools to the rear. It has problems with leaking roofs, dampness at low levels, and structural movement. The congregation of New Unity has prepared a comprehensive project, 'Recovering the Dissenters Legacy', encompassing full repairs to the historic fabric and improvements to access and facilities. The project has been awarded a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and repairs are expected to be completed in early 2020.
