We need your help .......
All the churches in our Benefice have joined the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) and accept donations made in this way. The scheme enables you to choose the amount you wish to regularly donate, whether monthly, quarterly or annually. Payment is made by Direct Debit. Once set up no further action is necessary, but changes can easily be made. The full value of your gift is received by the church (with Gift Aid should you choose) and a further option to increase your gift each year in line with inflation (these increases are notified one month in advance). You can also choose anonymity if you wish.
The PGS has proved invaluable to churches during these last few years, enabling a steady source of income, even when people couldn’t attend services. The Gift Aid option delivers the tax reclaimed into the Church’s bank account, within a month of the donation being made, and hence helps to cut down administration whilst giving cash flow advantages.
You can pick up a form from any of our churches or click on the button below for the Parish Giving website. Your support is greatly appreciated.
St Peter & St Paul Floor repairs update
A huge thank you to all those who made donations to our ‘Sponsor-a-Tile’ fundraising campaign. The collective generosity of the community has been incredible, and we have now met our projected shortfall target. The new tiles are currently being laid and it is anticipated that the work on the nave will be completed by early December. In the meantime, our Sunday services continue in the church chancel.
