Supporting and Developing St Edwards

Supporting and Developing St Edwards

Plans to develop St Edwards, to update facilities in both church and hall, have been considered for a number of years as projects are growing and there is a call for more space. 

We are now ready to take things forward.... the new heating system and secondary glazing has been installed and more insulation in the church and roofing will happen over the summer.  The second step will be to add more toilets (including facilities for those with disabilities) and a proper kitchen. Once the church building is fit for community use we will upgrade the hall. We also continue to develop and expand the activities and services run at the church and hall.

Inevitably both the building improvements and running the projects cost money, so we are fundraising...

One way to help us is to use Easy Fundraising at easyfundraising.org.uk and even better to enter their competition for a TV, with £150 donation to a charity of your choice... join at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/giveaway/fathers-day?

We are also grateful for the following support and pledges of funding

The Bernard Sunley Charitable Trust, Garfield Weston, Viridor Credits, Slaughter and May Charitable Trust and a legacy from Eileen Hale for the new heating system

Viridor for funding to repair and insulate the flat roofs over the side aisles.

Veolia Environmental Trust for the secondary glazing

Laing Family Trust towards the kitchen and toilets in the church

In addition, we are grateful to the Co-op for funding towards a kitchen upgrade in the hall and Chislehurst Rotary, Mottingham Community Association, Big Local, the Peter Stebbings and Tudor Trusts for ongoing support with our projects
