In June last year we asked our Church and community to pledge and give at least £200k towards seeing St. Alban's come back to life...
It is with much joy and thanks to God we announce that in our June appeal we raised more than £300,000 in cash and pledges!
We have a big vision to see that amazing Church restored for the glory of God and to the benefit of the whole community so thank you for your generous and sacrificial giving that blew away our target!
So now, including previous generous donations, this takes our total giving to over £600k!
This figure is amazing, but still a little short of the full amount that will be needed for the vital first phase of the redevelopment, including repairing the roof (including solar panels), putting in a heating system, adding some extra toilets and converting the Ascension Chapel into a dedicated prayer space. As is our custom we will also be seeking to support some developing world building projects in parallel with out efforts in Chiswick. We are so grateful that we are now financially ready for this work to go ahead.
So to everyone… thank you for what you have given. God is so good.
