There are presently over a hundred Friends, managed by a Committee which meets three or four times a year. Their support has included provision of the Courtyard Garden, wheelchair ramps, printing booklets written by Sister Gregory on the convent and its history, rebinding books for the antique library, a contribution towards the Exhibition’s new lift and provision of a camera for our social media team.
The Friends hold social events throughout the year, including concerts, barbecues and presentations, as well as the annual Christmas Service held in the convent’s beautiful 18th century chapel. For members who live at a distance, regular newsletters keep them informed of all that is happening.
The Friends welcome new members to join them in their mission to preserve the historic Bar Convent, its ministry and all that it represents.
