of St Mary’s West Acklam.
St Mary's is both
an historic and active church that plays a role in the life of West Acklam,
Middlesbrough. Friends of St. Mary’s provide a tangible link between the
church and the community and at the same time broadens the base of our
supporters for the church beyond our immediate congregation.
We welcome and
encourage those who have an association with St. Mary's Church or who would like
to support the work of the Church to become a Friend of St. Mary’s West Acklam.

The St. Mary’s
congregation funds the normal running expenditure of the church through their weekly
giving, including donating to charitable causes. However, over and above the
normal running expenses, internal and external
repairs are always needed, including maintaining the churchyard which must be supported. St Mary’s
congregation alone cannot fund these continual expenses, funding by the ‘Friends of St Mary’s’
can help in this necessary work. In addition to funding major repairs and
structural maintenance, we also hope that given a larger membership we will be
able to make a more general contribution to the church, and by doing so,
support the wider mission of the Church.
Recently Friends has paid for improvements to the porch notice board..
