Givenet-SUPPORT-button-LARGE-redSt Hilda’s is at a critical point  in the  project to restore Crofton Park’s feature ‘Arts and crafts’ building:  Slates are slipping at increasing rate;  water is coming in; ornamental stone work is crumbling, letting freezing water run down the walls and destroy the pointing.  We need felt and insulation to keep the heat in, and reduce our carbon footprint. Our aim is a watertight and warm church that will carry on serving  our community  for another 100 years.

We’ve worked hard  fundraising for 17 years, and  now  hope to raise £25,000 locally toward the  shortfall of £98,000. Will you help us with  this last  stage of the journey?

St Hilda’s is a hub for so  many people –  ‘the Undercroft’ is dedicated to community activities all week — you may have voted there in recent elections;  so many people enjoy the  beautiful worship space when attending  events  such as those which happen at the Brockley Max in addition to  Sundays, Baptisms, funerals, weddings, and special Christmas services. We host school visits and assemblies too.
