Those of you who regularly attend our Annual Parish Church Meetings will be aware that for many years now our regular income has not been enough to cover our church running costs and our reserves, which came from a substantial bequest in 1998, have now almost gone. In order to make sure that the work of the church in Leigh-on-Mendip can continue we would appeal to everyone in the village to consider whether they would be prepared to offer their financial support. I have prepared a breakdown of the church’s regular income and running costs, which is now displayed in the church porch and there are some Pledge Forms in the church for anyone willing to make a regular contribution to church funds.
I appreciate that most people in
the village lead
busy lives and are not able to attend church services whenever they are
hope that you will consider how much the work of the church means to
support us in whatever way you can.
Thank you for your support – Margaret Loten, St Giles’ Church Treasurer
The Church Choir, although having many members from the village, is not actually 'the' Leigh-on-Mendip Church Choir. It has members from LonM and the surrounding villages and performs at all three churches within the Vicar's Parish. They have been together as a choir since 2000 and are growing in stature and numbers. They would like to hear from any 'singer' who would like to join, what is fast becoming a very professional outfit under the auspices of Simon Francis. Practice is normally on Thursday evening between 7.30 & 9pm at either St Giles (Leigh-on-Mendip) or St Michaels (Stoke St Michael). Simon can be contacted on 01749-840260.
