Important Information

High Bray Church Tower Appeal - Auction of Pledges

High Bray Church has been open to our Village for over 800 years: for Services, Easter & Harvest Celebrations, weddings & funerals, and more recently 'Puddings & Song', Bell Ringers, the Singing Group, and the School Christmas Play.

Now the tower needs urgent repair, and if not repaired, it will limit the use of our Church.

This auction is to help raise the £32,000.00 which is needed to repair the church tower. All proceeds will go to the tower repair project. We are very grateful for any support you can offer!

The online auction will open on October 30th, please see the link below for a list of current lots.
