Urgent Appeal – All Saints Church Kesgrave

Our church wiring has reached end-of-life, our lighting is dim, obsolete, trips frequently, is far from eco-friendly, and we have no options left – we have to entirely re-wire the church and install new lighting.

We cannot allow the church to close this autumn/winter due to no lights, no heating, no organ, no electricity. Throughout covid restrictions we have run as many services as ever, on Zoom; we have been available in the community and on doorsteps. But, now we want to get back into a fully functioning church, with you all. To-date, the Lighting Appeal has raised £44,800. We are currently £25,000 short. Please help us by making a donation.
