Christians are encouraged to be generous in every aspect of their lives. It is not only about giving money but offering hospitality, giving time and using our skills – in our churches, and also in our homes, workplaces and communities. Giving is the outworking of faith.
Further information on why we give can be found on our Stewardship page.
If you would like to give to the work of St Mary's then you can do so in a number of ways:
We are so thankful for the many church members who give in a planned way. Regular donations to St Mary’s are administered for us through the Parish Giving Scheme, a national Church of England initiative which enables donations to be made by Direct Debit. Involvement in the scheme means that Gift Aid can be recovered more easily, so your gift can have a greater impact more quickly. Should you wish to, the scheme also offers the option to automatically increase your giving in line with inflation each year. Being part of this scheme also reduces the administrative burden on our finance volunteers within the church.
It's now quick and easy to set up regular donations online using the Parish Giving Scheme. Click here to go to the St Mary's Parish Giving Scheme page.
Or if you prefer, you can give via Standing Order, which you can set up via your bank using the church account details:
