Thank you for considering making a donation.

As you might know, local Church of England Churches do not receive any government funding or funding from the central Church of England.

Each local congregation raises money by voluntary donation and events to cover the cost of having a Vicar, providing ministry for the people in the parish and maintaining their own church building.

The church is valued by a wide cross-section of the community

Whilst the church might be primarily seen as a place for Christians to gather each week for a Church Service, it is far more than that.

It often holds a central place in the lives of local families as the place where they got married, where their child was christened or where they held the funeral for members of their family.

The church building is a place in the local community for large gatherings, for school activity and as a quiet reflective space for individuals.

The Vicar is here for everyone

Unlike the quip ‘the vicar only works on Sunday mornings’, the local vicar is here to serve everyone in the parish and often beyond. Whether that is working with local schools, nursing homes, local charities and community groups as well as serving individuals and families in their times of joy, grief and exploring life’s questions.

Communion during this time

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.
