A new church which blends centuries of history with 21st century architecture has been consecrated by the Bishop of East Anglia after a 19-year project.

A 200-seat, £1.2million extension to the original smaller 13th century Church of Mother of Good Counsel at Clare Priory was consecrated in a service on October 6, led by the Bishop of East Anglia, the Rt Rev Alan Hopes, before a 200-strong congregation of church and civic dignitaries, donors, parishioners and those involved in the work.

Leading the consecration Mass, Bishop Alan, said: “This is a significant celebration in the life of the people of God here in Clare.”
