    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.

    Story

    St Luke’s Church is an active church with a membership of around 100. It is also the focal point of West Norwood, a busy suburban community in South London. Because of it’s size, location and amenities it is much in demand for community activities. Open 7 days a week, the church hosts a foodbank twice a week, a Robes project winter night shelter for homeless people, a breakfast and after school club for local primary schools and a nursery and preschool for local at-risk families. The churchyard and St Luke’s Memorial Garden are the focal points for West Norwood Feast, a monthly community-run street market. The building is also used as an information point by our local council, LB Lambeth and a community resource for local groups, meetings and exhibitions.

    The toilets and coffee bar were installed in the 1980s and they are falling apart. We also need to improve the electrical installation to make the building safer and improve energy-efficiency and capacity.

    We are currently raising money to fund concept design which will be undertaken by our church architects. This will allow us to accurately cost the project, select delivery partners and submit detailed grant applications.

      Thanks everyone for your contributions! So generous. And fantastic to hear from the amazing Tweeds - hope all is well with you. In addition to the funds here we've also just received a confidential donation of £500 so I will be dropping the target to reflect that!

      We launched the project to St Luke's Church yesterday and today we are asking for letters of support from our friends, neighbours and partners. We will need these to apply for grants to fund the project.

      The mission of the church is to reach out to everyone with the love and Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our building is old and needs some TLC. We run Foodbank twice a week. We run Robes
