Special Appeal

The boiler providing both hot water and heating to the Church Hall, kitchen, toilets, offices, entrance and vestries has packed up and is not worth repairing.

We urgently need to raise £14,000 to replace this with a new upgraded system that will cope not only with our needs now but also when the community facilities are upgraded in the near future. This is a new and completely unexpected expense and we simply do not have the money to replace it at the moment.

Would you help?

Cheques can be sent to St John's Church Sparkhill at the address at the bottom of the page. We will gladly send Gift Aid forms for those who are UK tax payers.

Thank you
