St Peter’s Appeal A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to the appeal. For those who have kindly made a donation, if you can let me (Rev Paul) know if you would like or are eligible for a Gift Aid form. We are currently applying for a Bat surveys. Once we have achieved these works, including minor repairs, we will be able to apply for other grants for the major repairs to the roof, to the structure and to the stained glass.
Please pray for the ministry of St Peter’s at this exciting time. The appeal will continue until March, as we explore the possibility of fundraising for the installation of a composting lavatory and running water. Any donations may be made by cash or by cheque payable to St Peter’s PCC Ringland and passed to Rev Paul. Thank you so much for your support.
