Friends of the Eversden Churches
The Friends of the Eversden Churches of St Mary and St Helen
The Association was formed in 2001 as a charity devoted to raising money to restore and protect the fabric of the churches.
Most families in the villages are Friends and are invited to contribute at least £5 per year to the cause.
The Friends contributed money towards the work on the tower of St Helen’s and St Mary’s. Projects are proposed in co-operation with the architects and the Parochial Church Council. While the task of satisfying all the agencies involved is long and complicated, progress is made.

The upkeep of churches is costly. The PCC explores all avenues – grants, bequests, and Trusts. Local fund-raising, however, remains an important element. The Friends give everyone the opportunity to play a part – and to enjoy memorable village events. Village support does make a difference.
