Frensham Village Churches

Friends of Frensham Churches

Church sunsetWe're delighted to launch the Friends of Frensham Churches (FOFC) to help preserve our wonderful historic buildings for future generations.

FOFC was set up in 2018 by a group of people who recognised the need to help the Parochial Church Council (PCC) to fund the upkeep of the buildings and their contents.   All contributions to FOFC are used only for this purpose and not for the religious mission of the Church.   Charitable status is being applied for and the day to day running of FOFC is by a board of Trustees.  The fund is administered by the Trustees of FOFC and grants will be paid to The Benefice of Frensham PCC as and when appropriate.  All member contributions will be ring fenced solely for the purpose of the upkeep of the fabric of the churches.
