Working in churches presents very particular challenges and rewards. The buildings themselves can be very old and incorporate high quality materials and workmanship.  The work carried out may be seen for hundreds of years so has to be to a high standard.  Equally, the dignity and spirituality of the space needs to be respected whilst providing members of the congregation with access for regular services, and reacting to circumstances such as the need for a funeral with the minimum of fuss. That’s where Arlingford come in, we plan the work in detail, allowing flexibility in the programme for unforeseen events.  We use only the highest skilled professionals in their individual field, professionals with respect for their surroundings and the beliefs of our clients.

A Message from Fr Rob: St Cecilia’s Roman Catholic Church, Sutton. “The present round of work has now been completed along with the installation of some new pews. I hope that you are all as delighted with the work as I am. Thanks also to Stan Bakowski and his team at Arlingford for their hard work and for always doing their best to work around our Masses and Services.” Peter Mills St Cecilia’s Finance Committee ‘ all the people employed on site were true professionals, and in fact, they were all nice people’
