Friends of Burpham Church

The Friends of Burpham Church is a registered charity (No. 1103789) established in 2004 to raise funds to help maintain the structure of St. Mary the Virgin, Burpham, both as a place of worship and as a resource for the use of residents and visitors.  It is separate from the Parochial Parish Council, which runs the church and is responsible for its day-to-day upkeep.

Repair, maintenance, insurance, heating and lighting costs are about £6,000 per annum.  Even with a generous and relatively large congregation this is a challenge, and the burden needs to be spread as widely as possible amongst those who value the church. 

By becoming a Friend of Burpham Church you will be contributing to the upkeep.  Gift Aided donations or Gift Aided standing orders would be very much welcomed.  If you would like further information, please contact:
