  • What is Our Plan?

    Our Church building is used well by the community, and it is important that we continue providing a safe, well maintained space for them. It is a lovely Grade II listed Garrison Church we wish to preserve.

    • We need to replace the roof (including solar tiles), repoint the walls, improve pathways and the ramp.
    • We want to create flexible spaces inside the building for the local community to use.

    We are currently preparing grant applications to raise money. We are running a lot of community fundraising events.

  • How can you help?



    See how to donate on our Giving page, and get in touch so we know your donation is towards our building project.



    If you have an idea of a fundraising event you would like to run on our behalf then ask us - we would love to hear from you!

    My church family means the world to me and has helped through some very difficult times with their love, support and prayers. Without the church family I don't think I would be able to get through these tough times and that I am very grateful 🙏
