Fundraising

The Fund Raising Group is an important part of the church's team, as it not only raises considerable funds towards the upkeep of our beautiful C13th church, but is also an important outreach resource, bringing together the congregation, village and the wider community.

Annual Events include a very popular Afternoon Tea Ritz Style held in August, Wine Tasting and Murder Mystery Evenings, a Christmas Craft Market and Produce Sales, Spring Markets and Coffee Mornings.

The Fund Raising Group are also responsible for organising a Christian Aid Soup Lunch, a Harvest Supper and various other special events throughout the church's year.

Because we have no fixed pews, it is possible to hold many events in the church. A fund raising drive a few years ago, turned one of the vestrys into a Servery, with a food preparation area and kitchen storage. A disabled toilet with baby changing facilities was also installed.

The church participates in many of the local village events, including The Horticultural Society Summer Show, the biannual Scarecrow Festival and the monthly Village Market.
