to The Friends of St Peters Church
‘Friends of St Peters Church, Swingfield’ is an independent
Charity solely dedicated to the care and appropriate use of St
Peters Church, Swingfield.
St Peters was declared redundant in 2000, The ‘Friends of
St Peters Church, Swingfield’ was formed by some local residents.
The original aim of the group was to oppose the conversion of
the Church and to lobby the appropriate authorities to rescind
the decision to sell the Church and to establish for it an acceptable
and sustainable use.
The proposal submitted by the ‘Friends’ is to establish
a Registered Charity ‘Dedicated to the Care and Restoration
of the Church’ and also to ensure a strong Pastoral and
Community use. The main aim is to raise the necessary funds to
achieve the proposed aims, to enable the restoration and maintenance
of the Church.
