In 1902, on land donated by him, a Royal Navy Commander built this little church in Beech. It has been in constant use by the villagers and others, since then. We are so lucky to have such an active church in the village. Two Baptisms in August were a delight to be part of.
The “Tin Tabernacle”, as it is sometimes called, is one of about 30 such unusual churches in the country. It needs, however, occasional refurbishment. Inside it is quite sound and dry. Outside it needs repainting and repairing of some of the windows and doors together with roof and wall sheeting.
We are looking at a total cost in the region of £8,000 , the majority of which will have to be raised from donations but we also hope to obtain grants and funding from the Parish.
Whatever you are able to give will help us keep this special church safe and sound so that future generations can enjoy it as much as we do. If you are able to contribute towards that cost or if you would like to donate by cheque or via BACS, please contact Sarah Neish directly at [email protected], and if you are able to sign up to Gift Aid your donation will increase by 25%.
Thank you for looking at this and please come and have a look around the church any time or come to one of the services, held at 9.15 every Sunday. We are also looking to young families and the young at heart to help us with a service to suit their needs. I would love to meet you, please come to Beech Coffee and Cake, on Fridays in The Village Hall. I hope to catch up with you there or please do call me.
