Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Syleham: St Margaret

COMMUNITY AND FUND RAISING

St Margaret's PCC runs a variety of events which both bring the community together and raise funds either for the church's ministry or for its repair and maintenance.

Our last effort was to raise funds for internal re-decoration and we were able to carry out the work last year.  Our current project is restoration of the commandment boards, which are all but illegible; a promising start was made but all 2020 events had to be cancelled.  

We are, however, grateful to Baroness Elaine Murphy who has generously donated the proceeds of sales of her book on Syleham's old vicarage  Tales of the Old Vicarage.  Copies of this fascinating history may still be available.

Our first event in 2021

An early evening drinks party, with small eats, to be held at Gatehouse Farm on 10th July.  Please contact us if you would like to know more about this.

We have in the past benefited from external support from grant making bodies:  AllChurches Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Suffolk Historic Churches Trust, Round Tower Churches Society,  The Ganzoni Trust and The Scarfe Charitable Trust. There have also been some generous personal donations.
