The Guardians of Martock Church

Future Events and Programme

The Guardians of Martock Church were set up as a Charitable Trust in 1996 with the
sole purpose of paying for the refurbishment and enhancement of the structure of All
Saints Church. They have recently paid for a completely new Security System for the building and its roof and they will shortly be funding a new Audio-Visual sound system and a more efficient heating system.

"Between 2002 and the end of 2018, the Guardians staged 125 concerts or talks that were attended by 18,000 people and raised some £80,000 towards refurbishment of the church building."
