About the Friends Of Lanteglos Church:
The Friends of Lanteglos Church (FOLC) was set up 11 years ago as a PCC sub group to bring people together to raise funds for the church. At one point the church was at risk of closure but a Community Survey in 2015 demonstrated that there was overwhelming support (98%) to keep the church open for worship and for a wide range of community activities. We have subsequently been given full support from the Diocese to restore the church and improve the facilities.
We have been fortunate to receive a large Grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We also have confirmed grant funds from The Cornwall Historic Churches Fund, The Duke of Cornwall’s Benevolent Fund, The National Churches Trust, The Allchurches Trust, Garfield Weston, Veneziana Fund, The Big Lottery, Wolfson Charity, Skinners Charity, Dairy Crest, Jill Franklin Trust and Camelford Town Council and a Cornwall councillor's community grant. FOLC is also making a significant financial contribution as we have had some very generous donations and bequests.
Unfortunately, we are at least £50,000 short of the target that we need to raise.
One way to help restore the church and make it fit for the 21st century is to join the Friends!
We hope that you would like to join us in our effort to keep the future of this peaceful and beautiful church secure and become a Friend Of Lanteglos Church. You can do this with an annual subscription of £10 - with or without an additional donation or by making a bequest in your will.
