Friends of Waltham Abbey Church
Registered Charity Number: 1044663
The Friends of Waltham Abbey Church was set up during the 1960s restoration of the church. The aim of the Friends is to help raise money for the upkeep, maintenance and enhancement of the church fabric. Everyone is encouraged to become a member of the Friends of Waltham Abbey Church. We have members all over the U.K. and abroad.
The Visitor Centre in the crypt is a vibrant part of church life and supplies many items at reasonable prices including bibles, books, church guides, wrapping paper and cards of various kinds. Very popular are ones for Christmas depicting the church building. The Visitor Centre is manned entirely by volunteers.
We hold an annual Friends’ Evensong. Members enjoy an informal tea beforehand and a guest preacher is invited. We also have an annual social outing to a place of interest.
Membership forms are available online or in the Visitor Centre. U.K. taxpayers are invited to fill out the Gift Aid form to enable us to reclaim the tax you have paid on your donation. Please print them out and return your completed forms to the Parish Office, marked for the attention of the Membership Secretary, Friends of Waltham Abbey Church.
We look forward to welcoming you.
