Harvest Vision had been set up by a group of Christian Ministries in the early 1990s to find and manage a Centre from which these ministries could operate. Moggerhanger House was found in 1993 and the House plus 15 acres of parkland were offered to Harvest Vision for the nominal sum of £1.00 to house the ministries provided that the responsibilities of essential repairs on the Grade II listed building, estimated to be £350k, were also accepted. The Ministries between them miraculously raised £500,000 from their supporters in ten days which included sufficient to purchase the stable courtyard buildings, the gatehouses and the bungalow to make the project viable and contracts were exchanged at the end of 1994. The Ministries then raised further funding to restore buildings in the Stable courtyard to house their offices.
Work started on the restoration of the external walls of the house in 1996 supported by a large grant from English Heritage. Harvest Vision and the Ministries carried the restoration and development until the house was nominated to be upgraded to Grade I which would qualify it to receive large grants of public money through the National Heritage Memorial Fund. The Kitchen Gardens and woodland which had been retained (for development) by the developer were obtained in 1997 for the estate through a grant from the Landfill Tax. In 1998, because large grants could only be paid through a Preservation Trust, Harvest Vision formed Moggerhanger House Preservation Trust with the remit of restoring the buildings while Harvest Vision retained sole membership in order to preserve the original vision of a Christian Ministry Centre. One of the Ministries, the Centre for Contemporary Ministry, continued to run the activities and did so until MHPT became liable to return £1m of VAT reclamation as they needed to be seen to be managing as well as owning the Centre. So in 2000, CCM passed this responsibility, plus a number of staff and resources, to the newly formed Moggerhanger Park Ltd, a subsidiary of MHPT, to carryout the day-to-day running of the estate.
MPL operated the areas that were made available to them to open to the public and the work continued to be supported by the Ministries both practically and financially through a House Opening Fund, which carried out the first refurbishment of the bedrooms and installed a generator among other things. The Public Rooms and the Dining Rooms were brought into use at this time.It was expected that this initial stage of the restoration would have been completed in 2004 when a full Opening Ceremony was held including then Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan William dedicating Mrs Thornton’s boudoir as a Chapel for the conducting of Christian marriages. Unfortunately the builders did not complete on time for full occupation and it wasn’t until 2007 that a further civil ceremony could be held to announce the completion of this stage.In 2009, MHPT started work on restoring the grounds, Kitchen Gardens, moving the Education Centre etc, with a Parks for People grant - work which is still progressing today. The Ministries continue to support the work and in 2011, prayer partners of CCM raised a further £550,000 plus loans to acquire Park Farm to add to the estate.
Harvest Vision continues to have a significant role to play in preserving the vision for which the house was purchased.
