Whether it be heating, stonework, windows or the grand restoration project of the pipe organ, old churches never stop needing funds to continue their maintenance and renewal.  You can see the beautiful results of the recent restoration work of the Hutton Window on our Facebook page.  There is more work to be done to bring new light through our old but historic windows.  You can contribute to the ongoing restoration work by donating via Paypal or by buying church publications and greeting cards at church or online. See the Restoration page on the website for more details.


The church has published a variety of books and other products.  Our most recent publication is a first collection of sermons and essays by our current minister Rev. Bridget Spain.

The new book, as well as other books of sermons and childrens stories and greetings cards published by the church are available from the website and we take payment through Paypal.
