Can you help?
At present we have nowhere to meet or offer hospitality. We plan to build a straw-bale barn as the centre of activities. This will house the gathering space, a library and study area, refectory, kitchen, and showers.
We need to raise £70,000. Both the Archbishop of Canterbury and our own Bishop of Carlisle have given to us financially, but we still have a long way to go. Will you join us to help bring this vision to life?
Please note, you do NOT need a PayPal account to use this facility!
If you have donated, thank you very, very much. PLEASE get in touch so we can keep you informed of any developments. But only if you want!
