Change is always challenging. St. Michael and All Angels has endured through centuries of turbulent times gracefully presiding over the community from its slight eminence – a focal point for the village and a link to its past. But the problems it faces now are perhaps the most serious in its long history.

In the past the Anglican community was large and wealthy enough to support the upkeep of its enormous stock of historic buildings. Those days are gone. Unless St. Michael's can attract a wider group of supporters our lovely church building faces mounting problems. It receives no funding from the Diocese or the District Council towards its maintenance. It really does need Friends.

By becoming one you will be helping to provide:

  • repairs and improvements to the fabric of the building
  • vital basic work like plumbing and kitchen facilities
  • careful interior alterations to make it more accessible and usable
  • resources for urgent major restoration projects (e.g. 16thC & 17thC wall memorials)

As a Friend you will get:

  • a regular bulletin with advance notice of events
  • detailed progress reports on church improvements
  • your name inscribed in the Friends’ Book kept in the church
  • entry into a monthly prize draw.

You will also have the satisfaction of contributing to a priceless community inheritance with the knowledge that future generations will benefit from this key part of our history, as so many have in the past.
