Restoration Appeal

The Church is the oldest building in the village (it celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2023).  It is a place of welcome for all – for worship, prayer and reflection, baptisms, weddings and funerals, concerts and for those keen to explore the history and architecture of our beautiful Cotswold Church.

A recent architectural survey of the Church identified quite a number of restoration tasks which need to be completed.  The required work includes repairs to masonry, the Church roof and various other Church features.  This restoration is necessary to ensure that the Church is maintained and preserved, both for today and for future generations of Stonesfield residents.

The restoration work will begin in August 2024 and will last approximately 12 weeks.

The cost of the work will be £133,000 + VAT.

We are extremely grateful for the very generous financial support of many individuals and from grant-making trusts which will enable this work to go ahead.

Grants have been received from:
Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust (£30,000)
National Churches Trust (£15,000)
Garfield Weston Foundation (£10,000)
Benefact Trust (£3,000)
The AH Lynall Foundation (£1,000)
