Charitable Company Formed

Shortly before Christmas we took a major step forward in the Group's development with the establishment of a charitable company (Bemerton Community Ltd.), and we have now begun the process of registering with the Charity Commission. Once this is done we can start some serious fundraising.

Many people will look back on 2009 as the year in which St. John’s church was closed for regular worship. But it was also the year that saw the formation of our Group and the start of our attempt to secure a realistic future for the building. It was only recently, when preparing to tell our local City Councillors how we were getting on, that we realised how much has been achieved in the nine months since the public meeting about St. John’s on 30th March.

We are most grateful to all those who have either helped or supported our work in that time, and especially those who have made small donations to get us started.

We wish a Happy New Year to all our readers, and look forward to 2010 as the year in which our plans for the future of St. John's begin to take shape.
