  • "We love going to St Peter as we always feel welcome and at ease. It is great to see the effort Father Fabrizio is putting in to create a little Italian community around St Peter’s church and his drive to connect people living in the surrounding area."

    — Roberto and family

  • "Thank you very much for running the course. As someone quite elderly the course and the concept of mindfulness reawakened a sense of purpose in my life which I thought had gone forever."

  • “Fin da subito ci siamo sentiti accolti calorosamente. Finalmente dopo tanto abbiamo trovato un luogo in cui ci sentiamo a casa. Abbiamo avuto il grande piacere di poter battezzare la nostra piccola qui con Padre Fabrizio che ha reso la cerimonia unica, proprio come se ci conoscesse da sempre.”

    — Donatella, Fabrizio e Azzurra

Situation

St Peter’s Church has exciting potential for community use but the entrance is not fully accessible and there are no toilets or provision for serving refreshments in the public area of the building. These facilities are essential for increased community use. La chiesa è luminosa e spaziosa, ma l’ingresso non ha i requisiti necessari di accessibilità. È sprovvista di servizi igienici e di uno spazio adibito al servizio di bevande e alimenti: strutture essenziali per un maggiore uso della chiesa.

Solution

This campaign will contribute to costs and help unlock grant funding to install ramped and stepped access, toilets and a servery for refreshments. With these resources the church will be able to provide much-needed activities to bring people together and space for community use. La raccolta fondi contribuirà ai costi di costruzione di una rampa d’accesso, servizi igienici e bancone per il servizio bar. Grazie a queste risorse la chiesa potrà offrire attività necessarie alla comunità locale.
