Remembering His Royal Highness Prince Phillip 

 

Remember, O Lord, your servant Philip, who has gone before us with the sign of faith and now rests in the sleep of peace.

HARPLEY ST LAWRENCE CHURCH

On Historic England's "AT RISK" Register

 

Historic England continue to make the case for listed places of worship as heritage in their own right, as cultural centres for communities and as faith buildings. We support the people who look after them so they can share them with their communities and make them open as places of wellbeing for people of all faiths and none.

In usual times the 14,788 listed places of worship in England provide spaces for worship as well as social and community events, allowing people to gather for a wide range of practical and spiritual reasons. They usually provide a haven for individuals needing a quiet, safe and peaceful place to take a break from daily worries, irrespective of their own beliefs or circumstances.

They will continue to accommodate celebration and grief, shared and private experiences, art, music and sculpture, toddler groups, political hustings, and self-help and addiction support sessions. These are significant spaces in which human experience has been, and continues to be, welcome.

St Lawrence Church is in significant financial need and all help is warmly welcomed.
