Story

St. John the Baptist Church is a beautiful historic church at the heart of a small village, Greatham, in the north east of England; this stunning building dates back to 1180 and has been central to the community ever since. For hundreds of years the bells of this grade II listed church have rung out over the surrounding village and countryside, however in recent years they have fallen into disrepair and are in urgent need of aid both to sustain their majestic chorus but also to prevent serious structural damage to the bell tower.

The priority of the church has always been to serve the community and as such it does not have the financial reserves to provide this much needed restoration. Due to the current COVID-19 situation our usual methods of fundraising are not practical, as it would be unsafe to gather people for coffee mornings and fetes, it is also unsafe for our older congregation to raise money in the community. So with the help of the younger members of our congregation we have turned to social media and JustGiving to help raise the funds necessary to sustain our church.

Restoration of the church bells is estimated to almost £30,000 of which the church has to contribute £20,000, however without our typical fundraising methods we are asking for your support to keep our church bells ringing!

Thank you for any help and support you could give during these tough times.
