Debt fears over medieval St Mary's Church, Rhuddlan
There are fears for the future of a 700-year-old Denbighshire church, a year after a £120,000 refurbishment.
St Mary's Church in Rhuddlan owes £13,500 to the diocese of St Asaph, and the debt is expected to rise to at least £20,000.
Priest-in-charge, the Reverend Peter Allsworth, said the church needed to almost quadruple its £173 weekly income to remain viable.
The Diocese of St Asaph said it had "no intention of seeing the church shut".
Despite the £120,000 restoration which was completed a year ago, the church is heavily in arrears with its parish share - a sum paid by all churches to the central diocese....
