The majority of parish funds come from the parishioners, with some income from hiring the hall and interest from invested reserves.
Parishioners give in a variety of ways; cash through the collection and Gift Aided donations. Gift Aid is a government scheme which repays the income tax that you have paid on your donations: for every £20 donated the government gives the parish £5. Gift aided donations is the best way for parishioners to support the parish.
Our income is used to cover the many expenses associated with the parish which include wages, utility bills, ongoing maintenance, parish office, insurance and the levy paid to the diocese.
The parish also raises a considerable amount of money for diocesan, national and local charities.
