Church Appeal

St Bartholomew’s Church is a grade 2 listed building in a beautiful conservation area. The church serves the community with regular Sunday and mid-week services and is a very popular venue for weddings, baptisms, concerts and community events.

However, we receive no income from the government or the Church of England and our running costs of £161 per day include an annual payment to the diocese of over £42,000, well in excess of the amount raised by the congregation.

Additionally we have been working for some years, admirably supported by the local community, to raise money for the church building itself, which is in constant need of maintenance and restoration.

in 2017 we  improved the facilities by the addition of toilets, kitchen, meeting room and storage within church. The cost of this project was in the region of £160,000. The programme was phased to be carried out as funds become available through grants, donations and fund-raising.

We need as much community involvement as possible to raise funds for church, so please support us in whatever way you can.
