From generation to generation....

The Open Door Appeal is a registered Charity supported by Christ Church, Barnet. Thanks to the generosity and hard work of so many we were able to ‘buy back’ the adjacent building that once served as the original place of worship and school for Christ Church in March 2012. Our vision is to be using the building by 2014, 170 years after it was first opened.

We are committed to raising sufficient funds to restore it to provide a
building which will offer appropriate facilities for older members of the local community in a welcoming and secure environment. The demand for these types of activities is already far greater than supply. Nearly 9% of those living in and around High Barnet are over the age of 75, and this percentage is set to increase over the next few years.

Ownership of this Christian-led centre will offer practical help,
companionship, fun, activities and most importantly – hope.
With an Open Door to everyone.

The challenge for The Open Door Appeal is to ensure that major
renovation work is carried out on the building ‘next door’
to ensure it provides the service that is so badly needed.

The support we have received so far has been tremendous and wide ranging. From cake sales to climbing mountains, from ceilidh’s to quiz nights, from walks of 90 miles by one person in a week, to 60 miles in 24 hours with a group of over 100! And underpinning all of this have been the steady and regular donations by so many generous people within the local community.

We would welcome your support and there are numerous
ways you can help, we have something for everyone!
Please be a part of the Open Door Appeal!
