Replacing Stolen Church Roof

£365 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 2 months
Hi, my name Ian Ros McFadden and I am a member of the congregation at St. Lawrence’s Church in Bradwell Village, where I live.  The church is in on of the villages that the modern town of Milton’s Leynes has built up around.  We have a small but diverse and faithful congregation form babies up to nonagenarians!

Theives have stolen the lead roof from our 800 year old village church. Please help me raise money towards its replacement.  Our little church means so much to me.  We have been without a minister for a year now and we are in the process of recruiting an interim minister. This has been a difficult time for our congregation.  We are approaching Autumn and we really want to protect this historical building. Please help me raise some money and no matter your beliefs or non beliefs spare a prayer or positive thought to help us get our roof repaired.

The Fund will donated by me to the church fund and will be used directly for the roof replacement, because it appears the insurance will fall short of what is needed.  As a tax payer we will then be able to claim gift aid.

Please encourage people to tune in and also share the campaign on your own social media. The roof was secured by polythene sheeting on Saturday, just before the rains came. Thanks heavens
