St Hilda’s This Week

Final boost for the Warm Roof Fund and into the Future

We are only  £3000  off our local  fund raising target. We hope to   achieve the whole ammount by mid July when the mayor will set of the 2017 ‘Lewisham Three Peaks Challenge’  on July 1st and St Hilda’s members wil lbe walking to raise the final funds. We invite you to  sponsor our Vicar Fr Stuart and our Church Wardens Mr Tony Scott and Mr David Petty to acheive  the three peaks – click  the  give.net logo to the right  and please  tag  your donation  ‘3 Peaks sonsorship’,  or join us on the Walk.

Easter Day was the first Sunday and our release from Scaffolding 
on the completion of the Warm Roof Project  – we were able to enjoy the light flooding in  through  the clean  glass of the  repaired windows.  After a major  clean up the dust and dirt fo the last  50 years  is now gone. With the roof now sealed, dirt  soot and  crumbling roof materials will no longer be  coming down. 

Our thanks to our local donors and to our major grant funders for funds support and encouragement.

 

 

 

The church is open to visit and  for * quiet reflection  – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10.30 -6pm;   Saturdays  11 – 5pm; Sundays 9-12.30 pm;  and  Wednesdays 3- 6pm: Once the warm roof  and restoration is achieved,  we hope to have  funds to staff the office have even more open hours.
