In our 60th year as a charitable trust, Ashburnham Place has been hit hard by Covid-19 and the various restrictions & lockdowns of the last 12 months. Our ability to keep the charity running as normal with guest income has been severely reduced, we are in urgent need of finance to help us get through. We find ourselves in an extremely serious and precarious situation. This is not how we had planned our 60th year to be celebrated but we sense God at work in the midst of such difficult times.
Over the last year, we have managed to survive thanks to the generosity of friends like you, reducing our expenditure as far as possible and through extended loans. We were also able to host camping successfully during last summer which was hard work but a great success. We have continued to run the discipleship programme for young international volunteers and keep the place fit and ready for opening.
While there is a level of uncertainty about the future, we suspect it will be some months before we will be up and running fully, as a result we face another point of financial need to see us through the back-end of this pandemic. We are currently trying to raise £300k and we wonder if you could help us? We are obviously open to gifts, loans and lots and lots pf prayer!
Your gift will play a vital part in bringing us through to the next 60 years of service at Ashburnham Place; service that includes discipleship and sending of young people out to the nations, providing a safe and welcoming place of hospitality, demonstrating training excellent creation care and maintaining a place of prayer for the nations.
Our hope is that with sufficient funds in place we will emerge the other side even more fit for service and ministry. Thank you all
Paul and Andy
