    Story

    Hi Friends,
    So this will be the second time I have used crowd funding to raise much needed money for my church CreateChurch:Cannock in Huntingdon, Cannock in Staffordshire. Last time I asked for help you were so generous we managed to completely transform the building. We now have great facilities and have opened a cafe three times a week, we run Create and Play which is a parent and toddler group, and we run a youth club on fridays. We also have a company that uses the space on weekends for children's sports and of course it's also available to hire now.

    We have only been here months but it already feels like our forever home and we love it. The community is also starting to love it too which was a big part of the reason we took the opportunity to move.

    We've had an amazing start and we've held our first Christmas events which have been amazing however we have a big problem. The heating. We had children in for a Christmas film night which was quite cold and the heating packed up the day after. We managed to get it working for our Christmas Eve Eve craft fair and carols but we've been told it's on it's last legs. We desperately need help and I'm hoping that some of you may be able to donate to help us. We would love to continue to provide services for the community and to also build this wonderful church but we would really like to be warm doing it! Of course we already have regular givings from our church members but we need a little extra help. Can you help?

    Of course you are also welcome to visit us anytime and can find out more about our church and hub via: www.createchurchcannock.co.uk or via our facebook page

      Update from the Page owner

      Hi Guys, Just to let you all know that with online donations and some very generous off line donations we raised more than enough to fix the heating, with some spare in case we have problems again. The church is lovely and cosy and we no longer have to sit in coats during services. Unfortunately it also means I have no excuse for my poor piano playing! Thank you for much for all your support and if you have never been, come and visit! We would love to see you xxx

      I don't know if I can put off line donations on here so I thought I would update that we've had a very generous donation of £100 from a friend of the church. Thank you so much xxx

      Just been informed that Create and Play, out baby and toddler group, had to be cancelled today due to not being able to heat it enough. This is devastating to me and I'm sure everyone at Create who work tirelessly and selflessly to provide services to the community. It makes me wonder if the youth club will be cancelled too which will be awful as those kids need a safe, loving place to go. I will beg and I will plead if that's what it takes but please, please if you can help we would appreciate it so much. Even £1 can help. Thank you so much
