Sponsors & Donations

We do not charge for admission to the Church but maintain this beautiful building by the efforts of local volunteers and with funds generously given by you and other visitors from all over the world

Thank you for making it possible to continue the primary task of ministry from this church by your contribution. We are always grateful for other help, and particularly need more volunteer stewards to welcome visitors.

Our thanks go to all those 800 visitors who sponsored slates for our new roof last year and raised £10,000 towards it.

We also are very grateful to the following people and organisations have given grants and donations towards the restoration of this church.

The Heritage Lottery Fund                            The Idlewild Trust                               All Churches Trust

National Churches Trust            Owen Family Trust                 The R D Turner Charitable Trust             The G W Turner Trust

The Wolfson Foundation                                Worcestershire & Dudley Historic Churches Trust

 

The Colonel W. H. Whitbread Charitable Trust generously contributed to the restoration of the Foley Family Memorial in the spring of 2017.

Donations

To date, the restoration programme has cost approximately £900,000 in present day values, including £180,000 for the paintings and stucco work. It has been funded by donations from friends and visitors, local fund raising, and grants from Charitable Trusts and national organisations, as shown on the acknowledgement lists at the back of the church.

In 2016 we had the roof refurbished at a cost of £130,000 and our next appeal is to raise £26,000 to get the Foley Monument restored to its true beauty by conservators.
