Hello - I am St Andrew's Presbyterian Church - that lovely old building with the bell tower on the corner of River Road and Te Aroha Street.

I am 105 years old and I am starting to feel my age - but you could help me if you would like to be my friend.

Problem is - I am told I am not safe unless I get a bit more reinforcing, probably some more building blocks, and definitely a bit more concrete under my feet.

Of course, it all costs money, they say about $350,000. and I just don't have enough in my coffers at the moment to get me back on my feet.

I would love you to be my friend - if you could just spare a few dollars for my restoration fund I can go back to holding weddings, baptisms and funerals for my many old and new friends

So - why don't we get together and put that right.

Lovingly, your friend, St Andrew's Church.

Use of funds

The money will be used for the strengthening work required,

    We were married here in 1986, my father was an Elder, my father-in-law went to bible class here as a young man and his name is on the World War II Roll of Honour in the foyer. We have a strong historic connection
