Supporting St Peter's Church
Supporting your church
St Peter’s Church, Market Bosworth, is one of seven churches that make up the Bosworth Benefice. It is open every day for private prayer and welcomes many visitors who appreciate the peace and tranquillity within the beautiful building and the green space of the churchyard. The coronavirus pandemic has had a dramatic impact in so many ways, and during the last twelve months, our mission and ministry has never been more needed. We have managed to remain in contact through online services via Zoom and other social media platforms. However, the work of our church is reliant upon people’s generosity and we are so grateful for all the gifts we received. Your one-off or regular donation of any size makes a real difference. If you are able to give to us now, here are some ways you can help:
It’s easy to give from the comfort of your own home by donating on-line. You can make a one-off or regular donation and even Gift Aid it by completing the relevant section (if you are eligible*). Click here.
