But the Stump is more than just a historical artefact – it is a living church offering daily prayer and worship to God, and hospitality, hope and solace to people from around the town, country and the world.
The Friends of St Botolph’s aims to bring together in common fellowship all those who care for this church, helping to preserve, maintain and repair the fabric, and supporting its work. For example, we have recentl
y made a sizeable purchase of new music for the Choir, we installed the inductin loop for the hard of hearing, and we hope to help fund a replacement for the church’s sound system. Our funds are used exclusively to help the church. We invite all those who love this church to join us in our work. In this leaflet we provide some basic facts and figures, and encourage you to become a Friend of Boston Stump.
St Botolph’s has in recent years helped the church with many projects including:
- An induction loop for the hard of hearing
- Replacement of the sound reinforcement system
- Vestry Wardrooms and drawers
- Conservation of the Tilney memorial
- Stump’s history display boards
- Memorial to John Taverner, composer
- Together with many others projects
Membership of the Friends is open to all in sympathy with their objectives, irrespective of creed or faith. The annual membership fee to join is £12. Pick up a leaflet from the church or contact the church office.
