Parochial Church Council


We are hoping that you will want to help us ensure our churches survival with a donation.

St James the Great church has stood in Salt for over one hundred and fifty years, and the small number of regular church members are anxious to ensure its survival.  The same is true of our sister church in Hopton, which is in the same parish and will also need attention in the future.  We need your help.

It seems a shame that these fine buildings are under-used and we would like to see them open for increased community use.  They are used regularly for Christian services but could be a useful resource for our villages, and we want to explore what is possible.

We need to do several things in St James.  The heating is on its last legs and is no longer able to bring the temperature up to an acceptable level.  To encourage people to come in we need to replace it as soon as possible. There is also an urgent need to install a toilet.  These jobs are in addition to the ongoing maintenance of the building.  We are in the process of doing repairs to the roof, and the floor needs attention.  We can’t do this all at once but let’s make a start.

Should you wish to donate, there are several ways of doing this.  You could send a cheque to our Treasurer at the address given below.  We have also included our bank details to allow direct bank transfers.  Should your donation be eligible for Gift Aid please advise us (all details are given below).

We want to let everyone know what we are doing so thank you for reading this letter, and thank you in advance for your help.
