As we begin to open our buildings after being closed for months, we are still a church; meeting in new ways, with new rules, 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.
The offertory – financial giving - helps to resource the ministry of these and other churches in the diocese, and also provides us an opportunity to symbolise the offering of ourselves in worship by the offering of money. If you would like to give to St. Mary's to help the church and its mission and ministry you can do so<span style="font-size: 1rem;"> in a variety of ways.</span>
One way is online by clicking here You will then be asked how much you would like to give and be asked to enter your card details on the secure site.
Or you can send a text from your mobile phone to give. To give from your mobile phone, send a text message saying MARYS5 to 70085 to donate £5
text MARYS10 to 70085 to donate £10, etc.
Texts cost the amount donated plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £5 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text MARYSNOINFO5 to 70085.
Some contracts don't allow you to give in this way if your phoned contract is 'capped'.
