St Mary’s Church Tower Appeal

 

For 800 years St Mary’s has stood at the heart of old Heacham’s village;

Watched riots and wars, the railway and floods and been there to care and encourage.

‘It is much loved, used and welcoming,’ says Veronica the Vicar,

‘We’ve reopened now for worship and praise, and peace from candles a-flicker.’

But there is a problem, a big one at that; there are holes in the walls of the tower.

The gutters and roof let the rain come through, whether a deluge or shower.

The cost of repairs is a worrying sum – TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND or more!

We do need support, donations and gifts so we can the tower restore.

Please go to Just Giving and support the appeal, to our website and Facebook page too;

Bank transfer or cheque, or follow the links.* Your kindness will help us get through.

Thank you for your donations, we’ve made a good start; to date, around £7000.

With NCT grant and VAT claim, that target is on the way down!

The builders are ready, the scaffoldings up, and we’ve made sure no bats are around.

Soon mixers will rumble, stones cut and wood sawn – all busy building site sounds.

And then we can celebrate praising God’s love. Our tower is safe, strong and sure

For Christmas and harvest and weddings as well – and 800 more years in store!
