One very significant challenge we face as a Parish is that our income is largely derived from our weekly collections – which of course won’t be taking place whilst our church buildings are closed.
For those on Planned Giving credit cards, we thank you for your continued support.
For those who have supported us for many years by placing your donations or envelopes on the collection plate, we couldn’t exist without you. In our Parish, your contributions make up a significant part of our income.
We ask those able to consider going onto Planned Giving by credit card or making a donation to our bank account (details below). These options can be arranged for only the period when our churches are closed allowing you to resume your usual giving method once things return to normal. We know that some of you will be experiencing hardship and will not be able to contribute as you have in the past.
Thank you to all those who have made donations to our accounts, please note last week both the Parish and Priory have been issued with new bank account numbers as below. Please also note inward payments that have already been set up will continue to work.

Giving to the Church is a significant part of our overall commitment as Christians and we encourage you to give what you can.
If you’re able to maintain your weekly support of the parish that will really help us – because the bills are still coming in, parish infrastructure needs to be maintained, insurance to be paid, along with parish staff salaries and so much more.
Please put your name in the reference section.
‘Buildings are closed, not the Church. We are the Church… and we remain open in faith, hope and love!’
