Light up a Life Campaign

Many churches in the country are being targeted by metal thieves and St Mary’s has unfortunately seen her lead disappear at least 3 times in the last 5 years. To try and prevent future thefts we had to install floodlighting for security precautions, but which has the added effect at this time of year of brightening up the church and deserving of its place as the oldest building in the village.
We are inviting parishioners, and any other people interested in supporting this cause, to participate in our sponsorship scheme ‘Light up a Life’ which means you can sponsor a day’s floodlighting as an anniversary present, in memory of a loved one, to give thanks for the birth of a child or for a friend’s birthday.
We would like to suggest a minimum donation of £10 per day which can also be gift-aided using the yellow envelopes from the Church. Cheques can be made out to ‘St Mary’s Church, Launton’. Please contact Miss Joan Packer for more information or to sponsor a day on 01869 241694 or email me if you would like to be sent a yellow envelope.
