'Hello, I'd like you to know that it is an intention of the City of Bistol Council to keep this building as a church. They may agree to a school, or community centre, but they want this building to serve the Bristol community. So, helping us to purchase, you help Bristol to keep it's unique old architecture!

Update #6

Hello, you will be happy to know that the bank will give us mortgage with 10% deposit only, not 30%! It is because we are a charity. So, we need to collect about £30,000, not £90,000! This Fundly Fandraising campaign has collected almost £1000!
Our parish has got about a half of necessary deposit on our account now.
Let's continue efforts to collect another half!
Thank you for all donations!

Привет всем,
Я подписалась распространять продукцию - главным образом на основе алоэ - для здорового образа жизни компании FOREVER, см. http://www.foreverlivingaloevera.co.uk/
Если Вы там что-нибудь найдете, то дайте мне знать на е-мейл galkas@mail.ru, или через FaceBooк, чтобы договориться об оплате и способе передачи (Буду курсировать между Москвой и Бристолем следующие несколько месяцев). Покупая через дистрибьютора, Вы экономите на пересылке, а также помогаете нашему приходу обрести свой дом! Счастливо всем! Галина

Update #2

On 30th August, we created a fundraising committee. The 1st meeting suggested the following tasks:
- get in touch with the Council and make sure that they know our determination to buy this building;
- get in touch with current owners to devise a business plan based on data from the owners;
- to create a separate fundraising page on FaceBook;
- to include zero, or low cost loans into our fundraising;
- to obtain a charity number from the Diocise of Sourozh and include our parish as a part of this charity,
- to separate fundraising account from the our general church account.
- to have a fundraising charity sale of cakes, Russian food and souvenirs for Christmas!!!!

Update #1

The Holy Trinity parish in Bristol was founded many years ago with the blessing of ever memorable Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh. During these years the parish developed a strong spiritual life and moved from a rented house to a cemetery chapel. At present we are renting a small Catholic chapel in a Bristol suburb, - on the photo.
Quite unexpectedly, a Protestant church has come up for sale and our parish would like to purchase this building, situated on a hill near the centre of Bristol. This move will end our migrations and at last orthodox people in the Bristol area will have a permanent church.
Our community, whilst not affluent, is doing its utmost to raise funds for a deposit (10% of the estimated sale price of £350,00.00) on this building. Without the support of friends in the UK, Russia and elsewhere, we will be unable to reach this target by December 2015, when the building will go on sale.
The church committee is humbly and gratefully asking you to make a donation towards the purchase of this church. Any gift is welcome.
