Giving to St Mary’s

Have you ever considered giving to St Mary’s by Standing Order? This helps to plan our finances more accurately as we know what income to expect each month. It also means you can still give even if you are away from church for any reason. There are standing order forms at the back of church. Thank you for your support.

If you are a UK taxpayer St Mary’s Church can claim back 25p for every £1.00 you donate to church. Please consider signing up to our envelope scheme if you are a tax payer and fill in a Gift Aid form at the back of church. Thank you.
