Following consultation with the community around the parish of All Saints Thirkleby a new charity has been formed and named ‘All Saints Together’. The charity will follow a similar format to a ‘Friends Of’ group.
The purpose of the charity is to retain and enhance All Saints Church as a community asset for everyone to enjoy.
The purposes include the restoration, preservation, repair, maintenance, improvement and beautification of All Saints, Thirkleby, and of the monuments, fittings, fixtures, stained glass, furniture, ornaments and chattels in the church, churchyard and grounds, and Parish Hall and grounds belonging to the Church. And to promote wide interest in the care and preservation of the Church and its history.
The charity is a separate entity from the Parochial Church Council (although the PCC will always be represented) and aims to hold interesting events to raise funds and give grants to the PCC of All Saints Thirkleby exclusively for the purposes as above, and to generally assist those responsible for the care and maintenance of the Church buildings and grounds.
All Saints Together hopes to draw membership from the local community, those who have a past connection with All Saints Church and those who have an interest purely in the fabric of this beautiful historic church building.
We are planning a Launch Weekend to include history, music and social events from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th July 2022 so please save these dates and watch for more details to follow.
