We are desperately in need off at least £75,000 for repairs and restoration work to the church for the survival and long term future of St Mary’s. If you have ever been a member of this church, or indeed it holds special memories for you and your family, we urge you to make a donation. Any amount would be greatly appreciated, knowing that you have helped to secure the future of this lovely church.
Donations can be made via the PAYPAL link on the right. St Mary’s has always been there for us, it is now our turn to be there for St Mary’s during this financially difficult time. Thank you in anticipation.
Reverend Emma and Reverend Tim.

The most disadvantaged children rarely suffer on just one front. We work with these children to ensure that they are loved, valued and listened to. With them we fight childhood poverty, harm and neglect. Our network of programmes includes drop-in services for runaways, children’s centres and support for young carers. We support children who are refugees from violence, and we give those in care a voice. We transform children’s lives by pressurising central and local government to protect them, and we challenge attitudes that perpetuate harm and injustice. In hard times, children are among the hardest hit. We don’t just help them survive – we help them flourish. http://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/
