Annual Parish Meeting – Friends Report 2016

The Friends of All Saints Church Rampton was established in August 1997 to raise funds for the repair and restoration of Rampton’s parish church. It is not officially a church committee though there is provision for a member of the Parochial Church Council to be on the committee. The church continues, as it has for many centuries, to be a key piece of the fabric of Rampton.

In the past year, 2015 to 2016, the Friends Committee has continued to raise both funds for and awareness of, All Saints Church Rampton. Currently our focus is on popular and recurring events – one or two coffee mornings each year, line dancing evenings twice a  year and the wine tasting evening in the autumn. In December we  held our second Nativity Tableau outside the church with a cast of live animals and stalwart friends in period costume.

The group maintains a table in the church where cards and copies of the church guidebook are available for visitors to purchase.

An easy way to support the group is to sign up for membership at an annual cost of £10 for individuals, £15 for a family and £100 for a Life membership. The group will be losing its secretary at the AGM in September and is actively looking for a replacement
