Stanwick Group of Churches

St Paul's, Aldbrough St John Fund Raising

The Floodlighting Fund

Aldbrough Church has floodlighting which illuminates the outside of the building from dusk until 11.00pm every evening. Although this system uses bulbs that take relatively little current, the overall cost of electricity to the church is one of its major expenses as the heating is an electric system.

The church therefore offers an opportunity for anyone to sponsor the floodlights of the church for an evening or longer possibly to remember an anniversary or celebrate a special occasion. Your generosity can, if you wish be recorded on a special page on our website and/or  in The Parish, Church and Community Magazine. 

Forms to sponsor the lights are available in Aldbrough church,to download here or contact the Treasurer for further help if you can't get to the church.

The Churchyard Fund

Stanwick Churchyard is still open for burials so remains in the care of the Parochial Church Council. It is a very special place where there is always a sense of peace. The cost of maintaining this area in good condition is considerable. The grass is cut several times every summer by a contractor, and any repairs to the walls must be done to an appropriate standard for such ancient structures. Work on the trees is also important in order to keep the paths clear and other parts of the churchyard in a safe condition.

If you would like to contribute to the cost of maintaining the churchyard, please contact the Aldbrough St John Treasurer for further details.

Memorial messages for anyone with links to any of our parishes can be added to our website and placed on this linked page.
