As a result of our successful application for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund we are now recording all events raising money for the St Sylvester’s Church Renovation and Community Project.

Friday 22 February 2019: Invitation to the Celebration for the St Sylvester’s Church Heritage Lottery Grant

What an exciting evening. This has been a really good start to producing evidence to the Heritage Lottery Fund about our attempts to involve the community. We had almost 100 people for drinks and nibbles. Greg Weatherdon and Mark Jennings gave a presentation explaining exactly what is involved in moving forward with the lottery grant, what we have done so far and what has to continue to be done.

Thank you all so much for being there, all the help and support. It was terrific. We all hope you enjoyed it and are now in a stronger position of understanding just what is involved in going forward with the grant applications.

Photographs to follow.

Crib Service Sunday 16 December 2018

Once again this was a most enjoyable family service with about sixty people in the congregation including children. Every year there is an art display as well. This year the subject was The Three Kings escaping from Jerusalem to avoid Herod. There were some excellent paintings.

Notice on Facebook from Vicky Tucker:

The Coffee Morning in aid of St Sylvester’s Church, Chivelstone was very successful. £376.00 profit,(the same figure as last year).
We sold £100.00 worth of Christmas cards for different Charities and Anne Noyce was pleased with her sales for the Children’s Hospice.
Thank you all for your contributions and for coming and supporting us, another good fundraiser.
