Expanding St George’s role in the community

About the friends

Established in 2008 to maintain and renovate the fabric of the Church and to expand and strengthen its role in the community. The Committee is drawn from a mix of members of the congregation of St.George’s and from the surrounding community. Our current Patron is the Rt Revd Nicholas Chamberlain, Bishop of Grantham.

Our aim is to maintain and renovate the fabric of the Grade 1 listed church building, and to expand St George’s role in the community.

Support Us

Since establishing in 2008 the Friends has raised money towards two major projects:

  • the restoration of St. George’s West Window
  • Installation of new lighting in St George’s and cleaning of the interior

The Friends have contributed over £35,000 towards the costs to complete these projects but we need your help to continue the work we do supporting our Grade 1 listed church. Any donations are welecomed and appreciated
