The Project 900 team has put the finishing touches to a website which sets out the aims and intentions of Project 900 in raising funds for a new organ and enhanced development of music education and training at St Giles’ Oxford.
Funds will also be raised to provide additional facilities and to redecorate the building to heritage standards.
Project 900 is our exciting plan to raise funds which will allow us to develop the life of St Giles’ through the building of a new organ and enhancing the building.
Those interested in following the project and taking part in events, perhaps even assisting with spreading the word and helping to identify sponsors and donors, can now join a mailing list.
In preparation for the relaunch of Project 900 later in the year, Jonathan Mitchell – who is supporting the project in the wider steering group – led a short update for the congregation and wider community of the church on 20th June 2021. He set out the progress being made in confirming the objectives and purpose of the project and its schedule of planned activities. Lots more information about what we are planning will now emerge over the coming months as plans are settled and arrangements are made, but meanwhile Jonathan has promised a more regular rhythm of updates to keep the community informed about the project and its progress.
Jonathan also invited those present to Contact us in the Project 900 team if able to contribute in any way. Of course, we are especially keen to hear from those who may be able to contribute financially to our fundraising objectives, and Jonathan will shortly be reaching out to members of the community to discuss giving. But he emphasised that it is just as important for the St Giles’ community to support the project in any way they can: helping with the arrangements for fundraising events and assisting in the identification and engagement of prospective donors are just two ways in which individuals can make a huge difference. All friends of the church and supporters of our project are asked to Contact us in the Project 900 team if they think they can help. We look forward to hearing from you!
