All SAINTS, RYDE

Charity description

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

All Saints' is a landmark church, dominating the skyline of the town of Ryde on the Isle of Wight.  We are an Anglican church, part of the Diocese of Portsmouth serving the north east of the Island. 

This majestic church is a wonderful example of Gilbert Scott's contribution to the Victorian period. A number of features include the beautiful stained glass windows at the east end and in the north aisle, the pulpit which won prizes at the great exhibition, the period font, the wonderfully decorated pillars in an eco style, and the north porch built as a memorial to Prince Albert. In recent times a  'new' dais has been added  to compliment Scott's work. One really needs to visit to appreciate all of its beauty. 

We are currently fundraising to refurbish our World War 1 Calvary Memorial situated at the North East end of our grounds at a cost of £24,000.  Work starts shortly but we are still some £2,500 short.

Other Projects for which we are fundraising at this time are:

*   Replace corroding window bars
*   Installation of kitchen units and counter in SW of Church
*   Upgrade toilet facilities
*   Improve drainage around Choir Vestry
Please donate to support our cause.
The Church Community has committed itself to a number of projects over the next five to ten years, these include:-
  • The renovation of the stained glass windows
  • The restoration of the 'Father' Willis Organ
  • The re-development of the West End to include a community art gallery, shop and pop up cafe
  • Glazed front doors to the north porch
  • The promotion of English church music
  • A centre for campanology
  • Adapting the space available to provide maximum flexibility for church and community use whilst being sensitive to the overall ambience of this beautiful Victorian building
Please help us to preserve this landmark church, but better still, come and visit us and share our vision.
