Help fund Holy Trinity Church in Bickerstaffe with it's much needed graveyard extension.

by westlancsedward in Church Road, England, United Kingdom

Holy Trinity Church is a lovely church serving the rural community of Bickerstaffe near Ormskirk in West Lancashire.  The Church was built in 1843. The church is used not just on Sunday but for a wide range of other community activities/events.  But we need your help ! Our church needs a churchyard extension, currently our graveyard is nearly full, we have a project to enlarge this but need your help !  By the end of the year our graveyard will be full. There is an overwhelming desire from families for a local burial facility to be sustained here in Bickerstaffe. The alternative would mean families having to travel at least ten miles, bearing in mind the rural nature of the parish and poor transport links. This will cause hardship for the bereaved. The project involves- work to the church wall, spraying of the site, site levelling, digger hire, path laying, turf laying and buying, timer fence, new gateway, landscaping and hedges. Our new graveyard will have room for 300 burials.

Do you have any local connections to Bickerstaffe ? Are your family buried here ? Without our project where will you be buried?

We are not just wanting your donations we want you to make a difference to our community and become involved.

If we don't reach our target we will put the funds to ue on other smaller projects such as work on the interior of the church. All donations will be put to good use.

Why not come to one of our future events and see for yourself?
