The Magna Carta Appeal
for the

Church of St. Peter


Major fund raising effort for St. Peter's Parish Church, Molash 

The Church of England, Diocese of Canterbury, The Kings Wood Benefice.
St. Peter's Church, Church Lane, Molash, Canterbury CT4 8HD.               Reverend:  Dr Paul Ratcliff

An ambitious and exciting new project has been launched (March, 2015) to ensure the future of St Peter's Molash as a warm, welcoming and fully functional Parish Church.

The Magna Carta Appeal aims to raise a staggering £100,000 over the next year in order to provide a modern and efficient heating system for the church as well as providing toilets, kitchen facilities and car parking. The appropriate planning applications are currently underway.

These improvements are designed to make the church more appealing for services as well as enabling this historic building to be opened up for wider community use.

The appeal, named to commemorate King John's links with the Parish in the 800th anniversary year of signing the Magna Carta, will have a number of equally important strands:
There will be a concerted attempt to secure high end external funding, a series of local events ranging from champagne receptions to coffee mornings, as well as a personal appeal to everyone in the Parish.

DONATIONS of any size will be welcome - every pound will count!
