        Chairman Bruce Elam:    Hon Secretary Peter Raggatt:
We need Friends to help us with the repair and restoration of this historic church.
Will you please join us in preserving this
beautiful, ancient and important building?

We are a registered charity and your donation is eligable for Gift Aid
Our Friends are people who want to help restore and repair this beautiful church building  for the future. They are people of all faiths and none.
The Friends are a non-religious organisation but we work closely with the Church Council on Restoration matters.
We also have friends who help by supporting our fund-raising events.

The church building dates from about 1500 and is of great architectural value (Grade 1 Listed). It is a big open church and a great
venue for concerts, exhibitions etc.  
Although it does not have major structural problems, it needs a steady programme of repairs.
It is over 500 years old! The need to use conservation techniques means that even small repairs are very expensive.  It has an
active and friendly congregation but their  resources are not enough to do everything.  So the building needs help.

Up-date: November 2022
Our fund-raising concerts & other events had to cease during the Covid Pandemic but have now re-started. 
Our most recent fund-raising event was a concert by Hatstand Opera who performed "Golden Moments from Opera" on 29th
October 2022.  This was a light-hearted and fun concert.  It made a surplus of £1438 thanks to a grant from St Neots Town
Council towards the costs.  We need to thank the Rector and the PCC for permission to hold this concert in the Church.  In the
past we have hosted choirs, orchestras and social events and we hope to continue this fund-raising activity.
