The Friends of St Faith’s has been running since September 2011 and has raised more than £28,000. Some of this money has been used to fund our architect, Trevor Hewett, who has developed plans for St Faith’s Restoration and Development, working with the Steering Development Group. We have approval from the DAC (Diocesan Advisory Committee) for our plans which can be downloaded here. We are now in discussion with funders as we aim to raise the sum needed to undertake the ambitious work that will transform the building for the future.
Some of the events we run include
The wild Daffodil walk; the popular Harvest Auction at the Pandy; a theatrical presentation of Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’, the fabulous Birmingham Community Gospel Choir; the Scrap Metal collection; the Cellothon; the Dorstone Dawdle; a Race Night, ‘Meeting Mr. Eliot’, the Wassail and the production of a Dorstone calendar.
Events for 2017 Click
We aim to have fun while we raise money. We use the church for a wide variety of events, we work with the whole village and sometimes hold joint events to benefit both church, village hall and playing field. We are always keen for people to join us – you can organise an event, you can sit on the committee to plan the year, you can bake a cake – everyone has something they can offer.
