As you are probably aware an appeal was launched several months ago to undertake some significant repairs to the tower at St Mary’s church which I’m pleased to report should be undertaken during the course of 2019. We are eternally gratefully for everyone who has and continues to support our appeal.
We now see this as an opportune time to consider how we may be able to reorder some of the internal parts of our church building in ways to make it a major centre for the day to day life of Tickhill, where people can gather to enjoy activities which are perhaps presently not available elsewhere. The vision is that St. Mary’s church is inclusive to everyone, regular churchgoers or not, and still keeping its integrity as being a central place of Christian worship and witness in the community, this being our parish church.
Churches are being encouraged to develop their use as a sustainable community resource and St. Mary’s wishes to move in this direction to actively play our part in fulfilling the needs of today’s people and for the generations that follow. It would be great if you could help us with this important and exciting work.
In working towards this goal, we would love to hear what facilities you think we might be able to provide to make this wonderful medieval building a welcoming place to the whole community.
Please come along to a very informal gathering to be held in church on Saturday 06 April at 2.00 p.m. when we would very much look forward to seeing you and hear your views, all of which are important to us. Please put this date in your diary and I look forward to seeing you there.
