It is both a duty and a privilege for Christians to financially support the work of the Church. Although we do not stipulate how much you should give, we do suggest that you give in proportion to your income, bearing in mind the cost of other aspects of your life. As a registered charity (Charity Number XN45475) we appreciate every penny donated. You can support the Church in many ways: through regular offerings, and one-off donations, and by leaving us something in your will, and even by shopping online!
FREE WILL OFFERING ENVELOPES
If you would like to make a cash donation on a regular basis, then please contact the Rector and enquire about receiving Free Will Offering (FWO) envelopes. Envelopes should be placed in the collection box at the back of the church.
