Lighting Up St Mary's

The sight of St Mary’s Church when it is floodlit is truly beautiful. Many people sponsor these lights to celebrate an occasion, such as a birthday, wedding, anniversary, christening, or some other special day in their lives.  

Owing to the high cost, apart from Sundays, the church can only be floodlit when individuals sponsor it to mark a special event, but it doesn’t have to be a special occasion - you can simply contribute to the cost and either have it recorded (or not) in the Kingsclere Tower Magazine that you have sponsored the lighting on a particular day – or for a particular period.

For inclusion in the Tower Magazine please submit your form before the 10th of the previous month (i.e. for the details to appear in the April Magazine we will need to have the information before the 10th of March).  If you miss this deadline it will still be possible to have the church lit (providing you give at least a week's notice), but without a listing in the magazine.

The cost is £12 per evening with discounts for multiple bookings.  To sponsor one or more evenings, please complete the form below, and once you have received confirmation send payment (cheques payable to: St Mary’s Kingsclere PCC please) to: Andy & Sarah Bates, Brook House, Popes Hill, RG20 5SJ.  For more information please call Andy or Sarah on 01635 299710
