Farnham & District Bible Society Action Group
The Bible Society exists because millions lack the Bible in a language they can understand, in form they can use or at a price they can afford. At the same time, millions still have no understanding of the Bible’s value for them and their communities. The local group organises walks and other events to bring people together. The Bible Society is a Registered Charity (No.232759).

Farnham Trading Estate Chaplaincy
Canon John Evans holds the role of Chaplain to the Farnham Trading Estate. Workplace Ministry seeks to witness to the many small firms on the trading estate, being seen in the working environment and taking every opportunity to show when God and his people care for those who work there. He reports it is particularly encouraging when practising Christians among the workforce make themselves known; and rewarding when someone without a commitment to a faith — or even to a social support system — confides some need, trouble or joy.
Friends of Alton Abbey
The “Friends of Alton Abbey” was established in 1980 as a Registered Charity (No.284876). Its purpose is to raise funds to support the charitable work of Alton Abbey and, in particular, contribute to the costs of projects which the Community is unable to finance but which are essential to their life of witness and service.
The Abbey has existed since 1895 as the home of a community of men following the Benedictine way of life within the Church of England. The Community was founded some ten years earlier on work among merchant seamen in foreign seaports, undertaken by Father Charles Plomer Hopkins. Since his death in 1922, the Community’s work has developed a greater emphasis on the monastic rather than the active apostolate, with the Liturgy of the Hours at the core of communal life. You can find more information on events at Alton Abbey from the following link.
