Friends of Axbridge Church (FOAC): 


Save a little piece of history


The Friends of Axbridge Church (FOAC) is a registered charity, formed in March 2002, with the express purpose of raising funds to maintain the fabric of this historic building and help preserve it as part of Axbridge's heritage.  It draws its members from the local community and beyond and from those who have an interest in the town's history and its heritage irrespective of their personal beliefs.

Since 2002, FOAC has raised over £60,000 through donations and social events.  We have funded and supported 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, the re-lighting of the Church through the purchase of two pendants, the replacement of the boiler in 2013, the repairs to the tower in 2014 and the replacement of gypsum plaster in the sanctuary with lime plaster.  A recent project has been to help in funding the development of access for less mobile visitors. We are currently raising money to support the restoration of significant monuments in the Church.
