Over recent weeks, Saint Dunstan’s has been forced to carry out extensive (and temporary) work to make the roof watertight in order to avoid further damage to the structure and interior of the church. These costs, over £ 7000, were unexpected and so not budgeted for, as we had hoped to secure funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for structural work on the roof by now. The funding process goes on, but we need to raise enough funds to pay for the work carried out.
If you are a parishioner, please review what donations are possible within your means.
We need this building, in good shape, to continue the life of the parish.
We also appeal to all non-parishioners to help us keep this splendid building, Grade II* listed, and of national and international architectural and artistic importance, in good shape until structural work can be carried out, hopefully later this year. The unique building is a landmark in Parkstone, Poole, and is the only Arts & Crafts Free Byzantine style basilica in the United Kingdom.
Donations, anonymous or otherwise, can be made through the “Donate now!” button below, or in person, in the church, in the collection box for this purpose.
