Church Giving

As you will know, in these times of lockdown and restricted numbers when church is open, the church income is very much restricted so we are having difficulty in covering our costs. A big thank you to all who are continuing to give and if you can, we would very much like you to consider giving in one of the following ways.


The envelopes for the new church year will be available for collection in church from Sunday. Alternatively, if you let me know he will deliver to your home address. Please will you consider putting in your usual amount every week even if you cannot get to church and then bring them all to church when you can.

Standing Orders

This is our preferred method of giving. Please will you consider completing a standing order form which will help to ensure you give a regular amount. If you already have a standing order, please will consider increasing the amount if you have not done so for a while. If you are registered for online banking, you can set up or increase a standing order online. Alternatively, standing order forms are available in church or you can let me know and I will email one to you or have it delivered.

Individual Donations

If you prefer you can donate directly to the church bank account, either as a one off or on a regular basis. Our bank account details are
