Giving to St Mary’s by Standing Order

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.
