Heart of the Community Runners

Thanks for visiting our Heart of the Community Runners team fundraising page.

The Heart of the Community project is about everyday people living to make a difference.

With that in mind, our church members are raising £5.5m to invest in four key areas of community and church life. The buildings and facilities aren't the main focus of the project, they are simply tools for the task of living to make a difference.

We have 4 audacious ambitions:

1) The church building refurbished

Refurbishment of our historic church building will protect and improve it for increased use in the years ahead. Better heating, new toilets, redecoration and waterproofing are all included in the plans.

2)The Old School Rooms upgraded

Upgrading of facilities, especially sound-proofing and air-conditioning, will make the Old School Rooms even better equipped to serve the whole community and to be considerate to our neighbours.

3) A large new church and community centre

We're building a complex of meeting rooms and a community auditorium seating up to 600 people on the old barns site next door to the Old School Rooms. It's designed to enable St Michael’s to grow and to serve the community in many new ways.

4) Outreach and fighting poverty

The project aims to make a difference well beyond our parish boundaries, by sharing with other churches, and by supporting work to combat poverty and spread the good news of Jesus in collaboration with charities elsewhere in the UK and around the world.


FIFTEEN runners have joined the HOTC running team, to do their bit to raise money for this amaxing project to make a difference in our community.

You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your donation can really help us smash this goal
