A north Featherstone church has been awarded £800 for projects designed to reach out to the community both digitally and in print.
The congregation at All Saints’ Church, a grade II medieval church mentioned in the Domesday Book, will, use the money for two projects, one print based and the other digital. In the first project, a new booklet is to be produced to promote the church to children at All Saints’ School, their parents and residents near the church.
The money will also go to a new website to promote the church to a wider audience.
Vicar, the Revd Iosif Grosu, welcomed the award. He told the Pontefract and Castleford Express, “The church wardens, parochial church council and myself are delighted we have received this support from the Bishops Development Fund to help promote the church and hopefully encourage people, young and old, to come to church and see all the good things we have to offer all.”
