The Church Care Project
When we face a critical repair, a major renovation or a much needed improvement, our regular income is insufficient to fund such work. Therefore, for these strategic projects, we have a dedicated fundraising initiative.
The Binfield ARC [All Saints’ Repair and Care] Project was launched in 2016 to raise funds for the repairs of All Saints’ church, after a survey revealed the need to urgently address them. With the amazing support of the community, the first two phases of the project have been hugely successful and much of the urgent repair work has been carried out.
However, there is still more work to be done. With the collapse of the ceiling at St. Mark’s in 2020, significant maintenance needing to be carried out at the Cemetery and this on top of the remaining repairs at All Saints’ which were delayed by the COVID pandemic, it became clear that our fundraising needed a wider remit to be able to support all of our spaces.
The Church Care Project has therefore been created to raise funds to achieve this*, and we are hoping that the fantastic support shown for the ARC Project will continue.
Work Carried Out This Year
So far this year work carried out with Church Care funds (along with residual ARC funds) has included:
- extensive tree work at St. Mark’s, as identified as urgent in a site survey (£3,216)
- fixing the hearing loop at All Saints’ (£364).
- replacing the pump at St. Mark’s
- installing new heaters at All Saints’ (£6,702 to date)
