Church launches fundraising appeal to sponsor a piece of Redhill history

Sponsor a Slate on our new building

Residents of Redhill and Reigate have a chance to make local history by sponsoring a roof slate in the new parish centre at St John’s Church, which is currently under construction.

For a £10 donation people can sponsor a slate or, for a larger donation, put their name to a stone column or a stained glass window within the new facility, which will allow St John’s to provide a home for its many church-related groups as well as to play a bigger role in the community it serves.

Chris Clapham, chairman of the new building appeal fund at the church, said: “Sponsoring a slate really gives local people the chance to be a part of our wonderful project. People will be helping to provide for future generations who will use the new parish centre as well as sponsoring a piece of Redhill history.

“This parish centre will be of benefit not just to our church’s existing groups - from youth groups to those for older people - but also those in the wider community as we increase our activities to involve others in Redhill. So we’re giving the local community this chance to really feel a sense of ownership about a building which, ultimately, will be for them.”

The church’s ‘sponsor a slate’ scheme is the latest in a series of fundraising activities as part of its ‘Building for the future’ campaign. Parishioners have already raised £1.7 million in a little over two years, towards the fundraising target of £2.3 million.

Be a part of local history

Sponsor a Slate on our new building

Sponsor a roof slate, stone column or stained glass window panel and help us complete our new building. Each sponsorship will receive a commemorative certificate – making an ideal gift with a difference or a lasting way to mark a special occasion or event. Built today, like yesteryear, for your tomorrow.

Collect for the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity

Almighty God,
who called your Church to bear witness
that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:
help us to proclaim the good news of your love,
that all who hear it may be drawn to you;
through him who was lifted up on the cross,
and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
