We are the FAB parishes
- made up of three villages: Finningley, Auckley
and Blaxton, and two churches: Holy Trinity and
St Oswald, in Finningley and St Saviour in Auckley.
We are friendly and welcoming to all and this
is perhaps represented in the diversity of our
congregations. Each church has a mix of ages from
babies in their 'noughties' to the more mature
in their nineties, and each has singles, couples

Funding approved for improved
community access and facilities at Holy
Trinity & St Oswald’s Church,
People of all ages in Finningley, and the
surrounding villages, are set to get a much
improved community space within the church
building thanks to a £50,000 grant
from funding body WREN.
The money, awarded by WREN’s FCC Community
Action Fund, will be used to install a new
kitchen and toilets, and improve community
access at Holy Trinity & St Oswald’s
Church in Finningley.
Reverend Neil Redeyoff of Finningley Church
believes the facility will make a huge difference
to the lives of people living in the area.
He says: “This project will provide
a real boost to the people of Finningley.
It’s fantastic that WREN has awarded
us this money and we’re really looking
forward to our new kitchen and facilities
taking shape over the next 9 months”
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards
grants for community, biodiversity and heritage
projects from funds donated by FCC Environment
through the Landfill Communities Fund. Penny
Beaumont, WREN’s grant manager for
Yorkshire, says: “We’re delighted
to be supporting the Doncaster - Finningley
Church Community Project and pleased our
funding will make such a difference to so
many groups of people in Finningley and
the surrounding villages. WREN is always
happy to consider grant applications for
projects that benefit local communities
and we’re looking forward to this
one having a positive impact very soon.”
Neil Redeyoff said the new and improved
kitchen, toilets and community space will
be ready to use by August 2017.
