Organ Restoration Appeal

You can donate to the restoration of our organ here

A Note from the Treasurer

There is no easy way to say that the Church has started the year in a bleak financial
situation. Last year the pandemic severely reduced our basic income from cash
collections and wedding fees and made fundraising near impossible. The main
expenses which consist of contribution to the ministry, heat and light, repairs and
maintenance, insurance and ancillary staff costs continue, without any external
funding support. The net loss on running the Church for calendar year 2020
exceeded £10,000. As the pandemic crisis continues we are likely to have a similar
loss in 2021.
The inability to hold fundraising events also means that the Organ Restoration
Appeal is short of the restoration cost by approximately £8,000 at the time of writing.
A Quinquennial inspection of the church building is imminent which could identify
further essential repair costs.
Your Church is now approaching a situation where it will struggle to remain solvent.
The Clergy and PCC are appreciative of your contributions and recognise that many
of you have your own financial challenges at this time, but please maintain your
giving and if anyone feels they can give more this would be very welcome.
If you wish to make a donation then you can do so in the following ways:-
