Church Restoration Appeal

St Mary’s Church has supported many past and present generations of Colkirk families and will continue to do this for many years to come. The present incumbent supported by the churchwarden and members of the church council are merely custodians of this historic grade II* listed building, which has a direct link to the nineteenth century revival of England’s Convocation movement.

To keep St Mary’s in good condition for future generations we need your help to achieve this. A recent church architect’s report informed the church council   that the battlements on the church tower and other parts of the church need repairing. This is costly work. Funding from various sources is being sought and includes local fund raising activities.

The church visitor’s book contains many favourable comments from people who have visited St Mary’s. These include many visitors from overseas. Perhaps one of them may be you, or you might have a connection to Colkirk. If you would like to support this restoration work, any donation large or small would be gratefully received.

Please make cheques payable to St Mary’s Church, Colkirk, PC and enclose a letter stating the donation is specifically for church restoration work. Please send your cheque and letter to: Mr M. I. Barter, Churchwarden, St Mary’s Church, 5 Jarvis Drive, Colkirk, Fakenham, Norfolk, NR21 7NG.
