Giving and Finances

Our job is to proclaim the Kingdom of God, and to build a community of faith, service and kindness. This is the reason we have our buildings with all their expenses, and all the other outgoings of a Parish. We are not here to make money!

When we ask for donations, it is to enable us to do our job: we understand that money is not always available, and that many parishioners and families can find financial worries a part of everyday life. For this reason we are extremely grateful for all the donations we receive, whether in the Sunday collection, through Standing Orders and Gift Aid, or in response to particular appeals.

Please do consider giving to Saint Mary's, perhaps using the Standing Order form available to the right. You may also wish to remember the parish in your will (information about this is available from the Parish Office).

Soon we will be publishing our financial statements on this page, so that you can see the generosity of parishioners (especially to other charities and causes that appeal through us) and also where the money goes.

Standing Order Form

Please bring the form into the Parish Office rather than sending directly to your bank. Thank you.
