Thank you for choosing to give to support the work and ministry of your local churches.
Whether you are giving as a response to your faith and God’s love or because you appreciate the work of the church in your local community – thank you.
Every gift, no matter how large or small, is appreciated and put to work in the work and ministry of the local church.
However, as you consider how much to give it might be helpful to remember
No support from the government or the national church.
Each local church is responsible for funding everything it does, including paying for the building, the paid clergy and all the ministry work carried out. There is no government funding or funding from the centre or the local diocese.
For every pound we needed last year we only received 87 pence.
It simply cost more to do what we did than people donated. This means we are eating into our small savings and not doing everything we should and could be.
We spent our money on people and to look after our church buildings.
The vast majority of the money given to the church is spent on people. Paying for our vicars and the work they do directly with the people of our communities. We also maintain the very important community buildings, our churches.

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.
For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.
We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
