The Diocese of Ely is encouraging its churches “to engage fully and courageously with the needs of our communities” – and re-imagining our church buildings is named as a vital way of supporting that ambition.
The Trust would like to encourage such re-imagining and engagement by presenting ten Engage Awards to Cambridgeshire Churches each year for the next three years in recognition of good work done in that direction, by churches of any denomination, large or small.
The awards will be admittedly small – just £100, but a tangible token of our appreciation, and I aim to tour the recipient churches on our annual Ride, Drive and Stride Day (10th Sep this year) to present them in person.
P.S. The Trust is limited by its remit to supporting Cambridgeshire churches, but Ely diocese churches in other counties who would otherwise qualify are invited to contact me as I hope to find a way of acknowledging them in due course.
