The Friends

The Friends of All Saints' Church Ockham was set up in 2003 to advance the Christian religion by the restoration, maintenance and improvement of All Saints' Church and churchyard and to promote interest in its preservation, history and work. The Friends contributed £40,000 to a major stonework restoration programme, completed in 2009, and has recently funded the installation of an audio system and replacement of the paving outside the West door with York stone.

Membership donations range from £15 to £1000 annually and informal gifts of any amount are very welcome; their value can be increased by Gift Aid.
