The Friends of St Cyrs Church was formed in 2006.
Registered charity number 1114126
It’s stated objectives are “To advance the Christian religion by contribution to maintain, restore, improve and reconstruct the fabric of St Crys Church, Stinchcombe, Gloucestershire, including its monuments, fixtures, fittings, furniture, stained glass, ornaments, other chattels and its churchyard for the benefit of the public.”
Maintaining such an ancient building and the inevitable periodic, costly repairs is an onerous task for a tiny village. Support, through becoming a Friend, is very much appreciated.
All Friends are kept in touch with Church activities from time to time and through our Annual Reports, both of which will be available on the website.
Projects taken on so far include:
Resurfacing of paths: COMPLETED
Raising over £25K for new roof: COMPLETED
Building of new ringing floor for Bellringers: COMPLETED
Repairs to guttering and pinnacles: COMPLETED
Churchyard maintenance: ONGOING
Should you have a connection to St Cyrs Stinchcombe, maybe were married there, or lived there, or baptised there, or even just called Stinchcombe and would live to join the friends, please get in touch.
