Story

The much loved Tudor church of All Saints East Horndon was sadly used for an illegal rave on New Year‘s Eve. Essex Police made arrests and seized equipment, but now a massive clean up is required after hundreds of revellers trashed the place and caused damage to the building.

The locks will need to be replaced as it seems an illegal copy was taken of the keys, a window was broken and used for an air extraction system, the walls have been damaged when blacking out the windows, and the electrics have been tampered with to power their equipment.

We are only a small group of volunteers who look after this beloved building and rely on donations to pay for the repairs that are required to the window, the door lock, the electrics and a massive deep clean operation.

In non Covid times the church is opened up for events throughout the year, such as open days and plays, and we hope to be able to get the church back in a presentable order this year so we can welcome people in again once we are allowed.

    Please follow our Facebook page, and also the Churches Conservation Trust who do such an amazing job in preserving these wonderful buildings for us and future generations. We also received this very special email (shortened to fit):: "I was deeply upset to hear of the damage caused to my friend Fr Paul’s Church by a group of people holding an illegal rave party. Can you please show that YOU care by making a donation, however small, to put All Saints back on its feet again. Lets make 2021 a Happy New Year. Terry Waite CBE"

    Your commitment to looking after East Horndon is terrific. Vandalism of this kind is almost inconceivable - such lack of respect for our history and for those who work so hard to preserve it.

    With ancestors who were parishioners at All Saints I am happy to make this donation but distressed at the need for a special appeal.
