A big thankyou to those who voted for the St Paul’s Church grant bid or gave money

What grant?

Remember my post asking for votes and/or money to help finish this project? Aviva give grants to community projects based on the number of votes made on their website. The project is to build a new church and centre in and for the community in Penketh, Warrington.  We didn’t get quite enough votes to win the grant from Aviva we were after. But thanks for trying anyway.

It isn’t only about the grant

Thanks also if you are one of the people who gave money. Of course, we are still trying to raise the (nearly) 100,000 pounds we need. You can give on the donations website. 

A lot of work had been done by volunteers and by contractors since I last wrote, but there’s plenty to do before we can use the building.

A view of the part of the interior that will be the main worship and 'big meeting' area. that the grant would have enabled us to finish.
