St Thomas Church, Moorside, Oldham


We undertook some major work to repair the church bell tower and to treat some dry rot during the last 12 months. Although we received some funding grants, we had to fund some of the work ourselves and this has left reserves very low. We are fundraising so that we can continue with work to preserve the church and church hall buildings; to assist with running costs and to support our various groups. We have lots of children involved in our uniformed groups; rainbows, brownies, guides, beavers, cubs, scouts and Explorer scouts and in Sunday School. We also have ladies social groups and a friendship group for older people. We also run handbell ringing groups, church bell practice and ringing and a choir.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £501

Supporters so far: 46
