We have a passion for the conservation of historical Church art. As part of our Church beautification service, we provide a sensitive yet beautiful artistic service for heritage Churches and buildings. Being highly skilled in the conservation, restoration and reconstruction of artwork and designs, we are able to reproduce many of the original pieces of Church art including Gothic and Pugin designs. We continually research methods, materials, techniques, styles and the Decorative Arts.
Our Church beautification services include the cleaning, repair, conservation and reconstruction of Church designs and art including the Stations of the Cross. We have the skills and expertise to sensitively clean art and to recreate artwork or a decorative design even if the original is in very poor condition using techniques such as spectroscopy and micro analysis or mechanical methods.

Church Beautification Testimonials
Payneham Road Uniting Church
“Payneham Road Uniting Church engaged Gary Lancaster to redecorate the interior of its worship chapel… While we provided an outline of our requirements, Gary’s background and experience brought to our notice a number of features which, when highlighted, added considerably to the overall impact on the décor… The employees engaged by Gary were always cooperative, industrious and of good value.” Read more..
Church of the Sacred Heart
“Gary and his team did an excellent job, and were committed to doing their very best. Since the completion of the painting we have had a constant stream of praise for the work. It has transformed the look of the church. Previously it was painted a drab cement colour. It now has a much more pleasant, warmer feel to it, and many of its features have been enhanced by the colours they have been painted.” Father Brian Angus. Read more.
