Christchurch, in Pointon, is in the race to win a grant of £25,000 from national health insurance company Engage Mutual.

If successful in its bid for funding, the church’s northern aisle would be rebuilt and a kitchen fitted.

Churchwarden Keith King said: “Without a sink, clearing up after craft work, or offering a drink and a biscuit, can be quite a challenge. This grant would be a great boast to us all.”

In order to gain the funding, Christchurch, a corrugated iron and timber building built as a mission church in 1894, must win the most votes in the Engage Mutual contest.

Mr King said: “We have made it through to the last 60 and we now need lots of votes to make it to the top two – and win the grant.”

Christchurch is open every week for the Cornerstone coffee morning and throughout the month for evening drop-ins and school assemblies, as well as a full programme of worship.

Cast a vote and help the church win the grant.
