This total includes donations via online giving and other fundraising (including gift aid).  This is demonstrates the amazing generousity from the people of Royston and beyond.

Royston Parish Church is a focal point for the whole community of Royston. We will be restoring the church following the devastating fire and we will be taking the opportunity to update and refurbish it ready for the years ahead. Although the insurance will cover much of the work it will not be sufficient to cover all of the improvements that the church really needs in order to serve the community in the 21st century and beyond. We all want a beautiful building where everyone can be made very welcome and which can be used in a variety of ways for the benefit of the community. All your generous donations will go towards making this vision a reality. Thank you for all you are doing to help the church at this difficult time.

You can make donations via the Virgin Money Giving website
