The church is a central point of our community for private prayer, congregational worship, baptisms, marriages and funerals and other social evernts as we accommodate the daily round of worship, and a host of events, tours and meetings.
Just to keep the church running requires nearly £100,000 every year (or to put it another way, £11 for every hour of every day of every year) . And an historic building like this costs a great deal more in maintenance and repair work.
We continue to be grateful for the generosity of those who support our work, but as costs continually rise, we need to encourage all who have an interest in what we stand for to help us.
