Since the very earliest days of Christianity, people have given money, as well as their time and skills, to the church. This happens in all major religions. We recognize how much God has given us and we want to give something back. We also want to support all the church does in the community, and maintain its facilities.
Apart from the Gift Aid concessions available to all registered charities, churches do not receive money from the Government, and cost around about £2,000 per week to run. See how you can help below.
Parish Giving Scheme
The best way to donate is by the Parish Giving Scheme. You can, join over the phone, or use the form that we can provide. By using PGS you can increase your donation with inflation and PGS claims back the Gift Aid for us.
To make a bank transfer, please contact our treasurer Andrew Wilkinson, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
