We are raising crucial funds to install a new boiler to provide heating and hot water for our thriving community hub, and we need your help!

by One Church Gloucester Place in Brighton, England, United Kingdom

We Need You! 

Help us raise £20,000 to replace the boiler at our beautiful Gloucester Place church building which provides a thriving community hub in central Brighton, 7 days a week!

One Church Gloucester Place is 115 years old and is a unique and very relevant, living building for the use of the whole community. The building with its wonderful high ceilings and stunning architectural features has become a sought-after resource for our city. Over the last few years, building use has grown massively and activity has increased dramatically.

Far-ranging, crucial and inclusive activities are offered in this building every day of the week for thousands of members of the Brighton & Hove community. From parents and babies attending the toddler groups, to choirs and support groups for people in recovery, to our winter night shelter, to families accessing our Chomp holiday hunger lunch club, to drop-in sessions for the Justlife vulnerably housed people project, to young people accessing our ProBarista Apprenticeship offering coffee training & routes into employment, as well as the weekly meals provided by the Real Junk Food Project, to name just a few!

 

Clearly there is a huge need for this facility, and we need your donations and support to enable it to continue.

 

Spread some warmth

In the heart of winter, the boiler, which is over 30 years old and makes the building an accessible, welcoming place broke down.

The internal heaters are no longer able to keep our friends and visitors warm. Following professional advice we need to replace the boiler to ensure this thriving hub can continue for all our building users, providing warm hospitality to all that we are associated with.

This is where you can come in, to enable this to happen by donating to this crowdfunder, however small, and sharing it with others. Together we can achieve this!

Please Support us 

Please help us reach our target by sharing our campaign! We'd love it if you could tell your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours about it and our goal to raise £20,000 to keep a thriving community hub warm and welcoming! Share our crowdfunder site in person, by email, on facebook and twitter or through any other means you see fit!

Thank you so much!
