'Friends of All Saints' Church,
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.
shape our buildings, and then they shape us."
Sir Winston Churchill
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.
What we want to do!
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.
Can 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.
Where do I get more information?
