A charity called The Friends of Bawdeswell Church has been set up to support the church building. 

The objectives of the Friends are:

1 To organise and raise funds to be specifically used for maintaining the Church building and its fabric.

2 To bring the Church into the centre of the local community and encourage the community to work together and to use the church building.

3 To raise c£5000 per annum

4 Raised funds will be separate from the church general fund, and therefore will not be taken into account when applying for grants etc.

It is hoped that through a number of fund raising events, such as the “100 Club”, Race Night, Quiz Night, Craft and Art Fair and Concerts, support will be gained from a number of well wishers who do not necessarily choose to attend the services.
