Dedicate a Slate
Dedicate a St Marylebone Slate – Who has Changed Your Life?
St Marylebone Parish Church invites you to be a part of our history and dedicate a Welsh slate on our new roof.
As a member of the St Marylebone family and local community you may be looking for a special way to mark your connection to us and help us raise final funds towards the new parish church roof. All your generous donations will help to remove us from the Historic England Buildings at Risk Register and shrink our environmental footprint.
How can you help?
We ask you to consider our project theme, Changing Lives, and ‘Dedicate a Slate’ to someone who has changed your life…
It could be anyone! You could list your family members, friends, a health professional, a business, or even a place. By dedicating a slate, this is your opportunity to thank them in a distinctive and unique way at a cherished Central London landmark.
Your dedication will be marked on one of our new Welsh slates in silverpoint and placed face down, so you will know your dedication is there every time you pass our parish church – for the next hundred years and beyond! We will also record all your slates dedications to keep in perpetuity.
To do this, we ask you to make a one-off gift of £25. The final date for dedications is Friday 3 December 2021, after which all slates will be added to the roof, due to be completed by Spring 2022.
Roof Ambassadors: We are offering a second gift level of £250 for those who feel able to offer additional support. This extra funding will enable you to dedicate a slate and additionally help to support the community and education phase of this project. Fr Jack and the Changing Lives Team at St Marylebone will be visiting local schools and youth groups, educating young people by asking them to dedicate slates to significant historical figures from the area.
How to Dedicate Your Slate
We have an online giving portal for the Dedicate a Slate initiative here https://clslate.square.site/
You can dedicate as many slates as you wish (but please note that each slate needs to be purchased individually). Once you have made your online donation, we will write all dedications made on your behalf and send you a photograph in December.
Thank you for helping us to keep the community and heritage of St Marylebone alive!
