The tightly-knit community of Pappinbarra are fighting to save their church which is a focal point for people of all faiths who meet there every month.
The Grafton Anglican Diocese has asked the main parishes in the diocese to sell off little country churches including All Saints Church in Pappinbarra, St Cuthbert's Church in Ellenborough and St James' Church in Byabarra.
Writing in the Pappinbarra Pitchfork community newsletter, the progress association president Mary Walker expressed her concern.
"Our valley is facing the very real possibility of losing our beautiful little church. The land was donated by a member of the community, the church was built by the community, the grounds and building are maintained by the community, but the Anglican Diocese of Grafton is proposing to sell it," she wrote.
"You may not be a churchgoer and religion may not be your thing, but a letter expressing how you feel about this travesty would help. If you need more information you can contact Jean Hegarty on 6587 6077 or email@example.com
"The more noise we make, the better our chances of saving this iconic building," added Ms Walker.
Writing on the Pappinbarra Community Connect Facebook page, local activist Lisa McLeod said the community are fighting to keep the church.
"Please send by 13th February. As a community, with your show of support we will retain our church," added Ms McLeod.
Local resident Elisabeth Nejkov has already written to the Grafton Anglican Diocese to express her concerns.
"It is very stressful to hear that what was donated by the people of Pappinbarra will be sold by the receiver. This is not done," she wrote.
"It should be owned by our community, and not be sold by the one who has received this, thanks to the great generosity of the locals, who trusted it would be always a part of the people who made this happen: the community of Pappinbarra. God help us!" she added.
