Restoring the Church For All of Us


Friends of St Mary & St Eanswythe have chosen an innovative approach to our fundraising. Instead of opening up the more traditional Charity Shop in our local high Street we have set up a Just Giving Charity page to allow for one-off donations open to anyone who wishes to help us in our great cause.

The donation will run through Just Giving to provide you with a safe and secure payment facility. All contributions received are sent directly to us by Just Giving and will be dedicated solely to our unique goal. Just visit our Just Giving page via the tab below and follow the on screen instructions…

If you have any questions or items you would like to donate to the shop, use the form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Our Top Priorities

efficient heating

We all know that churches can be cold places due to the scale of the buildings, but it's not much fun to shiver in! The more efficient and cost-effective the heating system, the warmer we'll be.

the tapestry

The church is full of beautiful and intricate tapestries surviving so much through time and our aim is to make sure that survival is continued for many more visitors to enjoy.

The roof

The roof is obviuosly the most important strucure on the building, protecting all inside. We crucially need to complete all necessary repairs to make this 100% watertight.


Our constant. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to raise money. Join us and be part of the proud team looking after just one piece of Folkestone's heritage.

Get Involved

We Folkestonians cannot let neglect succeed in destroying our Church - the focal point of the town and it’s history - where fire and wars have failed. Once the Church has gone it will be gone for good. For the love of Folkestone we need to act now.
