Re-ordering Project - All Saints Church Longstanton.
You will be pleased to hear that, the PCC has finally been granted approval to make
significant internal changes to All Saints' Church here in Longstanton.
The aim of our project, whilst retaining the Churches' historical and spiritual relevance, is to transform the

is a challenging task, especially in the current "austerity' environment". We believe that our desire to modernise

This is by far the biggest
and most exciting challenge the church here in Longstanton has faced in its 875 years of being and we are
now asking you, along with the wider community, to contribute to ensuring that it remains pivotal to the needs of the whole
community for generations to come.
The latest estimated cost
of our re-ordering project is about £290.000 and we are hopeful that a significant proportion of this
funding will be obtained in the form of grants.

As we embark on our fundraising, we now seek your help by way

we need to show a real commitment to our own fundraising for the task.
These are exciting times for us and our church here in Longstanton as we seek to ‘realise the Christian vision'
through the modernisation of the building, that will benefit the wider community, as well as retain such a prominent and significant
place of worship within our midst, for generations to come.

but will also preserve the building for many generations to come.
