Further financial support for our £105,000 Church Welcome Project has come from Allchurches Trust with a cheque for £2,300. Allchurches Trust Grants Officer, Jeremy Noles, said: "We're really pleased to have been able to offer our support to this project, which will provide a warm and welcoming place for the whole community to come together and a listening ear for those who need it. "We were particularly impressed with Aylesbury Methodists' plans to reach out to those who may be feeling isolated or who are struggling within the local area, and enable them to connect both with each other in the church space and with the wider world through free internet access."
We are very grateful for Allchurches help and are currently finalising specifications in order to go out to tender. To read more about the project, click here. To read more about Allchurches Trust, one of the UK's largest grant-awarding trusts, click here.
