New Church Building Project
Many of our friends are aware that we have been searching for a suitable church building in the Bristol area to call our own for over 8 years without anything coming to fruition. Now we finally own our own property the hard work of fundraising and refurbishment begins
Our diocesan Bishop has given his blessing and support for the project. We have raised funds over the years and, although we have received several gifts and loans for this project, we still needed to obtain a fund to convert it in to a church. We therefore need to raise more for the planned refitting for the church worship.
We now appeal to your generosity to support our ongoing Orthodox work for the Lord in this area. With a building of our own, which will gradually be beautified following a correct Orthodox schema, as befits proper worship, there is no limit to what we could achieve.Many people have already given generously and we are very grateful for this but we need to raise much more. Please prayerfully consider how you might help us in this project. This could take the form of a gift or a regular banker’s order remembering also to maximize this by signing a Gift Aid form if you are a taxpayer.

We respectfully ask that you let us know how you might help by contacting Fr Varghese Mathew/committee members.Thank you for your help! We will keep you informed about the situation and also keep you always in our prayers.
Your servant in Christ,
Fr Varghese Mathew
