Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.
Mission Apostle for St John the Baptist Church, Bere Regis
is raising £200,000 to renew the roof of our ancient church. With £185,000 already pledged we just need the final £15,000 to get underway!

It was built by the Normans, embellished in the Middle Ages, survived Henry VIII, the Roundheads and two world wars, but age, weather, and thinning lead is catching up fast.
Our extraordinary church with its unique medieval carved roof, will only cope with the ravages of time and a leaky roof with help from all who value its architecture and its place in the heart of our community.
We need to raise a little over £200,000 to strip the thinning lead from the main roof and replace it. The good news is that nearly £185,000 has already been pledged or raised including nearly £20,000 from local fundraising and donations and some very generous grants from trusts, including Viridor.
If we do not repair the roof the unique and precious  medieval roof carvings will increasingly be at risk from the ingress of the weather and wet.
We just need the final £15,000 to enable the work to start.
