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 and The Allchurches Trust.
Prayer for the day
“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
