The Friends of St Helen's Church
The Friends of St Helen’s Church was established by a small group of Parishioners & Residents from the Parish of Clifford Chambers on the 15th March 2017.
The reason why this group came together was the realisation that in recent years St Helen’s has been struggling financially for a number of reasons. Firstly, the recent repairs to the tower depleted our limited funds by £150,000 with a further £15,000 being spent on the repairs to the vestry roof and redecorations of the interior.
By the 30th April 2017, this get together had adopted a formal constitution and agreed the name of this embryonic organisation would be The Friends of St Helen's Church. We have to-date donated nearly £30,000.00 to the restoration/maintenance of the Church & War Memorial.
