Keeping St Paul's running is entirely dependent on the generosity of its congregation, parishioners and visitors.
There are lots of costs associated with a church, not only those associated with maintaining a Victorian Grade II listed building, but also heating, lighting, insurance, organ and piano tuning, graveyard maintenance and other equipment servicing expenses. In addition, we pay an annual amount to the diocese which goes towards the cost of employing our vicar and supporting the legal and administrative outgoings which are an intrinsic part of the Church of England.
Can you help?
For regular attenders, there are a number of ways to give: we have the weekly collection during each service, a weekly envelope giving scheme, and it is also possible to arrange to give regularly by Standing Order. Regular giving is of immense help as it gives the church a more reliable income stream.
- If you wish to join the weekly envelope scheme, the please contact John Waldron for details
- To give by Standing Order please download the form on this page and follow the instructions it contains.
