The Appeal - Equipping St. Mary’s for the 21st Century
After consulting with the congregation and the community, the St Mary’s church family set about an ambitious plan to raise £475,000 in 2017. The plans included improving access for those in wheelchairs or with buggies, repairs to the organ, reordering the front of the church to create a more flexible worship space, and installing a kitchen fit for purpose.
Our hope was that by making these changes and equipping St Mary’s for the 21st century, more people would be able to use the church within the community, and our ability to outreach and serve our neighbours would increase dramatically. In addition the needs of modern day worship are constantly evolving and it’s vital that our ability to offer a range of styles and services keeps pace.
Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
We have been so blessed by the generosity of our Church Family, but also by a number of grant, and grant giving bodies who have donated significant sums to help us achieve our ambitions.
Special thanks needs to be given to the following;
Viridor, The Cooper Legacy, The Movement for Good, Devon Historic Churches, The Beatrice Laing Trust and The Allchurches Trust.
Thank you from us all - you are AMAZING!
Prayer for the day
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
1 Peter 5:8-9
