Can you help with a gift?

During this difficult time when our church buildings are closed, we are still a church; meeting virtually for prayer services and fellowship, loving our neighbours by offering practical support to the vulnerable, and caring for our communities. The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it.

We still need to support our mission, pay the insurance on the church buildings, continue our outward giving and contribute towards our parish share which covers clergy costs across the diocese, including here.

There are a number of ways to give, but with the closure of all our buildings we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now. If you are able to give at this time, please visit our online donations page by clicking here.
