St Mary's is at risk of closure if sufficient funds are not raised in 2017
St Mary’s Church is at risk of closure if sufficient funds are not raised to pay the parish share in 2017. Unfortunately we are behind on parish share payments and we need your help now in raising funds before the Church is closed forever.
Ways to help keep St Mary's in Marshfield:
1) Come along to church – please join us for Sunday worship and holy communion
2) Support our key fundraising events such as the Tree Festival on the 18th Dec
3) Support our other church events – lunches, concerts, quizzes and dinner evenings
4) Please consider the Church venue to host your events – at very competitive rates
5) Perhaps consider the Church as a part of your will
.....Even if you cannot help with the above, please just make a donation before it is too late.
How to donate:
A donation can be made in church or please contact us for more options
What it will mean if the Church closes:
- The church grounds could be sold for development
- A significant green space could be lost and local wildlife would lose vital habitat
- The church will no longer be available for key family events - there will be no more Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals, burials, confirmations.
There will be no resident priest in the village.
- The beautiful church gardens will be gone
- Community rooms used by local groups will no longer be available
There will be no Christmas, Easter or Remembrance services
Without your financial support St Mary's Church will face closure next year.
Please, please consider making a donation to help preserve the future of St Mary’s.
.......Once it is gone, it is gone forever...
