Come and join us to celebrate the beginning of the fourth year of the Friends of Wateringbury Church

Saturday 29th March 10am - coffee and refreshments at the Church

Everyone is invited to come and join us for coffee and refreshments at the Church to celebrate the beginning of the fourth year of the Friends of Wateringbury Church.  So far  we have raised a magnificent £10K through individual donations, business donations and fundraising events.  All monies go directly to the maintenance, improvement and preservation of the church and churchyard to promote public interest in the church, its history and its work.

Please come and celebrate the beginning of a new membership year with us.  Everyone is welcome.

At the end of March, every household in Wateringbury will receive a membership leaflet through their letterbox.  Please look out for this and either renew your membership or take out a new membership for 2014 – help us to continue our improvements for the church and churchyard.

Our first completed project has been funding the new internal church door.  Hope you’ll agree it looks great!

Anyone can become a Friend of Wateringbury Church, even if they aren’t churchgoers or even living in the parish. Perhaps you may value the building, its history and traditions, or just feel it’s important for the village to keep the church in good condition. Our overall aim is to assist with the maintenance, improvements and preservation of the church and churchyard, thereby promoting public interest in the church, its history and its work. Join us to help the church maintain its role at the heart of our village.

Thank you for your support at the Christmas Craft Bazaar!

The sale of chutneys, adult manicures and children’s nail painting and donations raised an excellent sum of £68.50.

It was a very enjoyable day and thank you to all of those who supported us.

STOP PRESS!

THE FRIENDS OF THE CHURCH OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST, WATERINGBURY (FOWC) has been registered by The Charity Commission for England and Wales as a charity – Number 1151983. This follows the recognition last year by HMR&C of our charitable status for tax purposes, making all donations eligible for Gift Aid. This is really good news, as it will make our task of raising money for the church more rewarding and a bit easier.
