The Friends of Axbridge Church is a registered charity whose aim is to raise funds for the conservation and maintenance of the Church buildings for the benefit of the town’s heritage.
Since The Friends was formed in 2002 we have raised over £50,000 through donations and social events to support and enhance the Church buildings.
The Friends has funded many projects including the engraved glass doors at the entrance to the Church, the refurbishment of the south porch, replacement of the external tower doors, replacement of the boiler house roof and has supported the re-lighting of the Church through the purchase of two pendants, the replacement of the boiler in 2013 and the repairs to the tower in 2014. We are currently raising money to support the replacement of gypsum plaster in the sanctuary with lime plaster to allow the stonework to breathe and reduce damp in the walls.
