A reminder to continue to support the Parish financially. Please remember that during this challenging time our Parish still has administrative charges to meet, so your support will remain vital. If you are not able to get to Church, please follow the guidelines below. It is recommended that every Sunday you put your donation in an envelope and keep it in a safe place until you go to Church again, using your Gift Aid envelope as usual. If you have yet to pick up your new covenant envelopes, it is suggested that Gift Aiders put their name and their Gift Aid number on the envelopes that you use. You should then bring them all to Church with you when you go. For the range of ways you can suport the Parish, please look here.
