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. If you would like to make a donation online you can DONATE HERE. 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 in 2016 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.

We are grateful for the grants totalling £48,000 received from the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage which provided a valuable lifeline to the church during the Covid 19 pandemic and allowed us to reopen to the public in 2021.


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 in 2017 it cost £26,000 to get the Foley Monument restored to its true beauty by conservators.

We will shortly be starting a 5 year programme which will include, among other things, having all the beautiful windows cleaned and protected, the organ refurbished and further repairs to exterior stone cladding.
