Appeals and Giving

From time to time we will post notices and appeals here on behalf of some charities that the our church or congregation are supporting:

Audio Visual and Service Broadcast System Appeal

For several years the PCC has aspired to extend the accessibility and nature of worship by the use of a modern audio visual system (AVS). The Covid-19 pandemic has brought more focus upon this as the video recording and live streaming of regular services has become an essential aspect of our church life. A recent legacy and careful stewardship of our resources means that the introduction of such a system is now within our grasp, so we have launched an appeal for contribution pledges towards the total cost of the project of around £15,000. More detailed information is available as a PDF document here: AV Appeal.

To make a pledge (deadine 30th November) please download this form and return either via email, post or in person to Nic Sellar. Details in the form.

The Friary

The Friary has stayed open throughout this pandemic as frontline support to help local homeless & vulnerable people at this very stressful time. They offer “at the door” practical support at the Drop-in and welfare advice and emotional support. Many rough sleepers have been given temporary hotel accommodation by the local council to keep them and others safe from catching the virus but it hasn’t been possible or practical to offer everyone accommodation. Many  people are still coming to the Friary for support.

Keyworth Community Projects - Food Bank (May 2020)

Keyworth Parish Church is pleased to announce that it has made an initial grant to Keyworth Community Projects specifically to support their new Food Bank project. We wish Shelley Millband and her team good luck with this venture.

Noah’s  Ark Zoo Farm, near Bristol (May 2020).

Ex members of our congregation, Larry and Toni Bush, (along with their children Orla, Sam and Connie) now live near Bristol where they have taken over running Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. (

The Zoo farm is an very visibly Christian enterprise, founded by Larry’s Dad who has now retired.
Just a few months into their new challenge Covid-19 has made life very difficult as with being closed they still have a wide range of animals to care for and have to keep the staff there to do that.
They have now set up a JustGiving crowdfunding appeal to try and help get them through these tough times.
If you are minded to make a donation please use the link below. As the business is not a charity it is not possible to Gift Aid your donation.
On behalf of the whole Bush family, thanks for reading this.
