We are delighted that sufficient funding, supported by loans, is now in place to enable the project to start up again in March. Grants from trusts, including GBP50,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation, GBP26,000 from Allchurches Trust, together with generous donations from individuals,have helped to close the gap.
We are enormously grateful to all those who continue to support the project.
St Mary de Crypt Church has now re-opened for the
summer season, Monday - Saturday 12 noon - 2.00pm
Weekly services take place in church on Fridays at 1.00pm
between April and September when we will pray for our city.
