Can you help?

Although the funds raised at our Summer Fayre help towards the annual upkeep of our church it is far short of the £69,000 that we need to raise each year, to keep our church functioning. Therefore we would very much welcome your help in this. Our church is not only a place of worship or a quiet place during the day for prayer or contemplation, but is fully functioning during the week through supporting local schools and a community group. It is your parish church, here for YOU in your community. We hope you will use this opportunity to invest in it.

A regular contribution, no matter how small will help.

Our most recent Quinquennial report is available here to read

If you can help, no matter how great or small click here for a standing order form to send to your bank.

Alternatively click on here for our JUST GIVING page for a one off donation - all donations are really welcome. Thank you. Please do support us - we really do need your help! Thank you to the people who so far have kindly donated to our Just Giving page.
