The Building Anew fundraising appeal got off to a great start in 2023, with over £160,000 raised in the first four months.  Steven Randall says: "Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. Looking ahead, I am delighted to say that the Christingle service on Sunday 4 February will be raising money for the appeal. We hope to see you there!"

There are lots of other fundraising initiatives and events also lined up for 2024, so please look out for more information on these over the coming months. Alongside this, the fundraising team is busy submitting grant applications and will be approaching local businesses to ask for their support too.

In the meantime, please keep your donations coming to help us reach the £1 million needed for the building work as soon as possible. The easiest way to donate is to scan the QR code here, which offers options to make either one-off or regular payments and also to add Gift Aid if applicable. For other ways to donate and more information about the project, please visit


We would also be delighted to hear from you if you would like to get involved in a fundraising event or to raise money through a sponsored activity. We will be glad to support you with this.
