St. Alban the Martyr

Who are the Friends of St Alban & St Patrick?

We are members of the present congregation, former members who have moved elsewhere, members of other con-gregations and of none. What we have in common is an appreciation of the architecture of the church, or of its musical and liturgical traditions, or of its historic mission in Highgate. Many of us see a vital connection between these aspects of St Alban’s life and we support the church and its life by our continued interest and prayer.

More practically we raise money through subscriptions and social events in order to extend the resources available to the Parochial Church Council to enhance the beauty of the church and its surroundings and to maintain and improve its facilities.

We generally hold Spring and Autumn fund raising events with a supper and speaker.

As we believe that the St Alban’s community is larger and more diverse than the St Alban’s congregation at any given time, we keep extra-congregational members in touch with the affairs and activities of the church. All members receive newsletters and notices of Festival Services, celebrations and other events.
