St Laurence's Trinity FUNders

St Laurence's Trinity FUNders

We are a body of people working and praying together to restore and maintain the historic parish church of St Laurence in the popular village of Downton, six miles south of the Cathedral City of Salisbury in Wiltshire. The church dates back to the 12th Century and we wish to ensure that it remains a welcoming place for the community for the enrichment of life and faith for many generations to come. The crisis in 2008 was the complete failure of the church’s heating system which only seemed to have been around since the 12th Century! However it did serve us faithfully for many, many years thanks in no small way to some very dedicated gentlemen nurturing it. We had to find funds for it to be totally replaced; you can imagine this is no small task in such a beautiful, ancient listed building. We now need to repay £75,000 in loans! The church itself – just to stand still – costs a lot of money that we raise annually with our regular events at the Cuckoo Fair, Summer Fete and Christmas. Therefore what we need now is EXTRA funding in even larger amounts. That is where the St Laurence Trinity FUNders come in. You may wonder why we have chosen the title Trinity FUNders – this was our immediate choice because • We need God’s help in all three of his forms in all our efforts - hence Trinity • We’d like to have fun while raising this money – hence the wordplay – FUNders. • Our mission statement is also in three parts and reflects St Laurence’s by using it’s initial letters - Saving the Past – Thanksgiving for the Present – Legacy for the Future, <br /><br />
