 Fundraising to make St John’s an even more welcoming place for all the community

As part of the work to make St John’s an even more welcoming place, we are fundraising for new carpets for the Crpyt rooms, which are used for youth work, homeless outreach, Alcoholics Anonymous and much more.


Brilliantly, the Myanmar Christian Fellowship, who also worship at St John’s have donated £3,000.  We now need to match that, raising another £3,000 to fully fund the project.  


It’s a big ask, but we’re doing well.  A HUGE thank you to everyone who has got involved and supported us so far.


Sarah’s cake-alicious sale gave us a great kick-start…                    Then you all Brought The Change....

So far, we’ve raised £1,300!  We’re nearly halfway there….
