2021 Capital Campaign


The Church of St. Bartholomew was built for the glory of God, for worship and mission. It is the repository of our shared history and a living reminder of our duty to serve the whole community.

The St. Bart’s 2021 Capital Campaign target is $750,000 for capital projects in the church and the hall, including the restoration of the East Memorial Window. It is seeded by $100,000 from a generous bequest by a former parishioner, the late Joyce Bryant.

Background

Our campaign builds on many years of planning to identify the priority needs of the church and hall.

2017 the Building Advisory Committee undertook an inventory of future capital and maintenance projects needed over a ten (10) year period.

Corporation identified priority capital projects which cannot be covered by the church’s annual maintenance budget.

Corporation, Parish Council, the Building Advisory Committee and the Stewardship Committee then worked closely together to refine the plan and to gain approval of the parish for this campaign.

May 16, 2021, the parish approved the launch of the St. Bart’s 2021 Capital Campaign..

Objectives

The necessary restoration of the 100 year old East Memorial Window. In 2017, Eve Guinan of EGD Glass, a stained glass conservator, recommended significant restoration work, which must be carried out.

Other necessary projects in the church and the hall will enhance the physical fabric of our facilities for the safety and enjoyment of parishioners and also make St. Bart’s even more inviting for the broader community, including for rentals. Capital Campaign Project

Approach

Support from parishioners, military partners, governments, historical, and heritage organizations, as well as the community at large, will all contribute to our campaign’s success.  Everyone is encouraged to participate!
