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?
