'Friends of All Saints' Church, Longstanton'.
You will see that we are mindful of our rich
history and the inheritance that we now enjoy passed on to us by the faith of countless persons who have worshipped here in
Longstanton through the ages.
"We shape our buildings, and then they shape us."
All Saints Church Longstanton is the most
prominent building in our community. Yet despite its visual prominence, the church building is under-utilised. If our church
is to thrive and meet the needs of our growing community, it needs to redefine its space in ways that enable it to function
both now and into the future.
For the church family there is belief
in the mission of the church to reach out to the local community. For the wider community there is belief in the importance
of securing the future of a culturally significant and valuable building and the need to create a community space that will
bring a village closer together.
we want to do!
We are seeking to revitalise the interior of the building thereby forging a much more
practical as well as spiritual relationship amongst and between the church community and the wider community.
How can you help?
We have estimated
that if each household within Longstanton gave £15.00 towards the funding of the church re-ordering
project, we would raise almost £20,000.This would be seen as a significant contribution from the community
and would certainly greatly enhance our chances of obtaining further funding from grant funding organisations.
If you feel able to contribute to ensuring that our church here in Longstanton remains
a focal point in the village, available to all within the community, then a donation of £15.00 will
help us realise that vision.
I help in other ways?
Yes, you can. Not only do we need financial support, we also need
people to give of their time, helping us to raise further money as well as becoming involved in the many processes that are
part of the wider project.
do I get more information?
