Become a Friend

How much do you care about our parish church, 200 years old in August 2016?

You may not worship with us for a variety of reasons, but do you wish to see it in good repair inside and out for occasions when you do visit, such as carol services, baptisms, weddings, funerals and the great Christian festivals of Christmas and Easter?

If so you might be interested in becoming a Friend of St. Lawrence’s.

Who are the Friends of St. Lawrence's?

We are a group formed to help with the upkeep of the church. We don't subsidise the day-to-day running expenses but rather provide the extras such as:

  • a second notice board in the churchyard
  • new service sheets and carol sheets
  • screens for the children’s corner
  • a projector and screen
  • cleaning the stained glass windows
  • and so on...

How do you raise funds?

Who can become a friend?

Just £10 per year.

How do I join?
