Gift Aid

Gift Aid Envelopes: Boxed sets for planned giving are available for collection in Church.

Ypu can maximise your weekly Offering by getting the Government to pay an extra 25% at no cost to you, by joining GIFT AID. This can be done in two ways – Firstly: by Bank Standing Order (monthly) or secondly, using the envelope scheme, whereby, you place your weekly offering on the collection plate. Either way is very beneficial to the Parish, especially when every penny counts! Please contact Vic Steadman via the Parish web site for details. Thank you.

 

Thank You!

A big “Thank You” to all who helped to decorate our Church so beautifully for Christmas. Thank you also to Musicians, Servers, Sacristans and all our Ministers who worked so hard to prepare our beautiful Christmas liturgies.

Thank you also to all who contributed so generously to the traditional Christmas collection. This collection now helps the Parish to provide Fr Michael a small monthly stipend. It is much appreciated.
