What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Our church is 150 years old and in need of some much needed upliftment. It is a place that has created a home for many of us and the community that has grown is unlike any other I have experienced. The people are warm and friendly but the building is less so, especially in the winter. Our great dream is to not only have a warm space where people can spend time with God no matter the season but also to have a space where we can meet together and grow our community in God.

Jesus appeared to St Francis and asked him to rebuild his church, we are living in a time when the church needs rebuilding not only literally but figuratively too. The world needs God more and more every day. It is with this in mind as well as many of my personal prayers of thanks and for guidance that I am walking from Padua to le Verna sanctuary in Italy. It is the path of over 400km that a Franciscan friar St Anthony walked when he would go to meet St Francis in le Verna. It is also the place where St Francis received the most holy Stigmata. The five wounds of Christ.

On my way I will pray and I aim to grow closer to Christ and the holy trinity, to our Blessed Lady and to st Anthony and st Francis. Please feel free to email me your prayer intentions on and I shall ask these great intercessors to intercede for you.

I ask you for your prayers as we rebuild the church and as I embark on a journey of a great saint
God bless
