Further to our exciting news that work is underway on improvements in church; I'd like to share with you our online donations page.
We have a shortfall of £34,000 to cover the costs of the works. The donation process is easy to navigate through. If you're able to spare anything to help us meet the costs of the project we'd be very grateful. The improvements to church will be a fantastic benefit to all, from those who attend services regularly to those may not attend often but have their wedding with us, children baptised with us and say goodbye to their loved ones with us.
We'll be updating the amount raised weekly, via social media and in the notice sheet given out at services on a Sunday. Thank you
We are delighted to announce that the works to upgrade the facilities at St Mary's Tadcaster have now commenced. The improvements taking place include installation of a toilet and kitchen, new audio/visual equipment and new seating. It is expected that the work will be completed towards the end of September.
In order to comply with Health and Safety regulations church will be shut to the public during this period. It is anticipated that services during this period will be held in the Boys’ Sunday School; although Baptism Services will not be affected and will be held in church as planned.
Confirmation of the location of services will be available on the church social media accounts, on the notice boards outside church and in the weekly notice sheet.
Copies of the weekly notice sheet and Focus Magazine will be available at Hidden Treasures during their opening hours.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this short period of building works, if you have any queries please contact one of our churchwardens, Celia and Jonathan, who will be delighted to speak to you.
