Will you please
join us in preserving
this beautiful, ancient
are a registered charity and your donation is eligable for Gift Aid
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
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
