Withington PCC is most grateful to The Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson
Foundation for its generous grant of £45,000
The grant is to further its work of preserving aspects of cultural
heritage. This will also help us to sustain a regular congregation which
therefore helps to preserve our wonderful, historic building.
