St Bartholomew's News


St Bartholomew's finances are now in a very precarious position.

We have been relying for the past ten years on the generosity of a huge legacy which has enabled us to supplement our income from church giving, donations boxes and concert activity in order to make sure that all of the costs of running this magnificent church can be fully met. It has also enabled us to spend a lot of money on essential repairs and renovations to the fabric of the building to make sure that the integrity of the building is not in doubt and that it is safe for public worship and all the other day to day activities that take place.

We now need a lot more money to ensure that we can meet all of of our ongoing costs (including our vast ministry costs) and also to build up sufficient reserve funds to cover those unusual costs that will arise in the future - 

things like 

major overhaul and repairs to the roof and fabric generally

replacement of heating boilers once they are no longer serviceable

any major work and overhaul of the organ - an essential part of our worship

development of an adequate fire escape to broaden concert activity

We very much need your help in supporting this famous church.
