FRIENDS OF ST. JOHN’S CHURCH MOGGERHANGER
The Friends of St John’s Church came into being in 2002. Its supporters are people who are not necessarily churchgoers, but who care about this beautiful little church in the centre of the village of Moggerhanger.
The Friends raise funds to keep the building and the churchyard in good order. Every year we have to spend money to do repairs and maintenance to the building itself and in the churchyard. Work done on the large trees, in particular, has cost thousands of pounds over the last few years.
Funds are raised in two ways. First, we run two social events every year. In the early summer we have a Safari Supper where people from the village meet together for a welcome drink followed by starter and main course at different houses before meeting together for dessert and coffee at the end. A really enjoyable way to raise money.
Second is an autumn event which usually has a theme such as the a James Bond Evening, French Evening and Spanish Evening . And our catering is legendary.
The second method of fund-raising is to appeal to people to subscribe to The Friends of St John’s Church. This can be for as little as £1 a month. The annual income from our current list of ‘Friends’ is £1300 but with a new project on the horizon (to have much-needed toilet facilities inside the church) we could do with more help.
If you would like to become a Friend, please contact our Treasurer Ken Ebbage. He will happily send you a form so that you, too, can join us in helping to preserve the church building and grounds. Click on this link to contact Ken: firstname.lastname@example.org
