fundraising events

Well, what a 12 months plus we have all endured.  None of us have been left unscathed by the impact and ravages of Covid on our families, our community, our work, our education, our NHS.  Our plans have been scattered to the winds. The Priory Church Christian community is no different in this respect to the rest of our community. We have suffered with everyone from isolation and in our case, a lack of events, an inability to welcome visitors and a major disruption to our usual busy programme.

For all of us now, as we see some light at the end of this dark long tunnel, rather than bemoan what the year has done to us emotionally and financially, we feel rather that it is a good time to celebrate this return to something like normality. We have therefore planned an exciting, imaginative programme of events and look forward to welcoming you to these. Enjoying time and entertainment together in and around our wonderful Lancaster Priory Church, we are sure you will find much in this programme to interest you and for us all to have an opportunity to join together, Church and community, under the banner of self-help and to celebrate some freedoms.

(host sign-up sheet at the back of church)

Several small events built around specific skills in people’s gardens or using a church space if preferred.

Could you offer a date to share the teaching of a skill such as crocheting or felt-making for e.g. 6 people on a convenient date at e.g. 2pm-4pm.  Up to 6 people sign up and offer to give a donation such as £10.

Your event can be linked to Just Giving LANCASTER PRIORY AFTER LOCKDOWN for donations.

Several evenings in people’s gardens (or inside homes depending on Government guidance).

Could you offer a date to make a meal for e.g. 4 people from e.g. 6.30pm to 8.30pm.  Up to 4 people sign up and offer to pay what they would for a 3-course meal.

Dinner party not your thing?  Don’t worry you can organise a Coffee Morning or Drinks Party instead – numbers may have to be limited due to Covid regulations and people donate as they feel.
