The PCC of Chelsham, St Leonard vehemently reject the draft proposal from the Diocese of Southwark, reference DMPC/303k/aml dated 24 May 2013 for the union of the parish of Warlingham and the parish of Chelsham, and for St. Leonard's to become a Chapel of Ease.
This is a church with an active congregation - as evident by the annual Horse & Dog Show, held at Fickleshole Farm, organised by Gillian Cooper. Below are a few photos from recent events;
A Great day was had by all - thank you to all who came, and made generous donations. All funds will be used to maintain the church and it's grounds.
This is just one example of how active the church is...... Therefore, we vehementlyrejectthe idea of a merger of the two parish Churches.
Members of the church are currently circulating a petition for people in the local community, including the school, to sign in order to protest against this decision. We are still looking for even more support, and would very much appreciate help from the wider areas to stop this happening.
So please, show your support today.
