WILL THE TRADITION CONTINUE?
Your assistance is needed to save this very special place for future generations. Every five years the church building is required by statute to be checked to ensure it is in good repair. The latest report indicates repairs to the roof are required - quotes have been prepared, tenders sent out, a price agreed and contractor selected - this now requires sufficient funds of around £130,000 to begin repairs to the roof.
That is why The Friends of St. John the Baptist Great Rissington Building Trust has been formed. Every penny raised will be used to ensure that the church continues to exist for future generations to enjoy - whether for celebration; festival; quiet contemplation; or historical interest - or maybe to pay their respects to the young men of a previous generation who gave their lives in WWI, including the five Souls brothers of Great Rissington. The Trust will continue to do this even if, for any reason, the building ceases to be used as a place of public worship.
