Welcome to our Parish!
Fundraising for a new
A year ago we
started to raise money in order to buy our own church. We were hoping to buy
a Methodist church in the centre of Bristol which was put up for sale.
Unfortunately, we didn't have enough funds to win the auction, so now we
continue our efforts to raise more money and are actively looking for a
property to satisfy our needs. The maximum loan we can have from the bank is
for 250 thousand. The average cost of a church building is between 300 and
350 thousand. At the moment we have 37 thousand in the bank and the more we
can raise, the better are the conditions for the loan. We are a small parish
and people are giving generously what they can afford, but we mainly rely on
the help of friends. This is our objective. In the meantime, until we find
something suitable to buy, we hope to move from Frenchey and, as a temporary
solution, to rent another place closer to the centre, where we can leave all
the things we need for our services.
help to collect the money.
Let God help us in our efforts!
