The Church does not receive any state funding. We rely on the generosity of our members to support our mission, ministry and the maintenance of our historic church buildings.

The most effective way to support our community financially is to donate monthly, so that we can budget with greater certainty. The Parish Giving Scheme provides a simple mechanism for you to do this. It also enables you to enhance your giving through Gift Aid, if you are a UK tax payer, so we can claim an extra 25p from the government for every £1 you give.

If you would like more information about the Parish Giving Scheme, or any of the other ways in which you can give to the church, please speak to one of the Wardens, the Ministry team or contact our Parish Office on 01993 779492.

There are also many opportunities to donate time and talents, and here again, speak to one of the Ministry team if you’d like to explore this in greater detail.

A big thank you to all who support the church

Our stewardship enables us to fulfil God's call and share in God's mission

The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament.
