Why we need your help

Create 800 - Celebrating 800 years of Worship at St James in Mangotsfield!

St James Church, at the heart of Mangotsfield is currently undergoing a transformation - with the aim to provide the local communities of Mangotsfield, Emersons Green and Lyde Green with a new community space.

The package of work includes:

>Raising the floor so that it is level with no steps so everyone can easily access and move around our space.

>Improve the kitchen area

>Install toilet facilities

>Add flexible seating to open the possibilities of new uses for the building

>Improve the heating system making it more efficient and more comfortable

We are doing this because we want to increase the ways that everyone can use our building, so it becomes a centre of the communities of Mangotsfield, Emersons Green and Lyde Green.

We've come a long way - and have managed to raise more than 80% of the funds required. Most of the major works are now complete. However, we need help with the last £100,000 to get the project finished. We truly are so close to the finishing line - If we had the full money the church could re-open within 2 months!

Any amount you could give to help our church building get back in use would be put straight to work helping to get the building works completed. If everyone in the parish gave just £10 we could complete the work before Easter!


**UPDATE!** September 2020

We raised a phenomenal amount of money to complete the work detailed above! Unfortunately the COVID pandemic has affected our progress. During the crisis, our builders went into administration, leaving debts to sub-contractors.

The sub-contractors are required to do some final bits of work to enable us to actually use the building for public services and events. This has left us with an extra bill of £15,000 which needs to be paid. Any help you can give us to enable us back into the building, and begin our vision of a community building at the heart of our village, would be gratefully recieved.
