Essential church repairs

We have launched urgent appeals for financial help in carrying out essential repairs to the fabric of both our churches. Major repair work is needed to the Tower of Holy Trinity Church, Holme and to the Vestry of St James Church, Burton. Please visit our:

Tower Repairs web page;

Vestry Repairs web page;


for further information about the repair work needed and how to make a gift.

Did you know that you can also raise free donations for the Holy Trinity Tower Repairs by using "easyfundraising" whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday? For more information click or tap here.

We will keep you updated on the progress of fundraising efforts with our fundraising thermometers.

As the minister of the parishes of Burton and Holme, welcome to our website! I hope that I will get the chance to greet you personally either in the villages or at one of the churches.

We aim to be friendly church families who make it easy for new people to join us or just to come along and see what we are about.

We remember that the church buildings in Burton and Holme were built to be places of worship for everyone in the villages.

Whether you’ve just arrived or have lived here for years you will be very welcome at any of our services, groups or events.

If you’ve got questions or you’d like to talk to me then do get in touch; I’m not too busy to phone you or visit you.
