St Andrews Facilities Project

Our aim is to have a functioning church, community hub and venue with appropriate facilities to support community activities.

Phase 2 is the long-awaited installation of toilets within the church building.  To achieve this, we will relocate and upgrade the kitchen area.

Phase 1 of our project was to upgrade the heating and lighting in the church.  This was completed in 2016 and fully funded by the Hingham PCC.

The achievement of Phase 2, will mean we can increase the use of the church building, as a centrally located community resource.  We will be able to offer more concerts (the church offers the best acoustics in the area), community activities, building on our existing groups; Music Group, Messy Church, Keep Fit.

The total cost of Phase 2 was £169,121, but due to rising costs of materials etc, it is now £198,000.

Fundraising

Fundraising for the completion of the facilities project is ongoing.  We are delighted to have been awarded £35,000 from larger funders, towards our project. This means our total raised so far is £131,000 as at mid October 2022.

As at July 2022, we have raised over £90,000. This means we have finally reached the halfway point in our fundraising and can apply to larger funders. We have submitted a number of applications in July to these funders.

Meanwhile we continue to fundraise, with a Quiz night planned for the autumn 2022.
