‘Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.’ 2 Corinthians 9:7
Where does our money come from?
We are grateful to God for his kind provision for us through the generous giving from members of our congregations either by regular giving, one-off gifts or legacies. Tax refunds from the Gift Aid scheme are also an important source of our funding.
What do we spend the money on?
Our money is spent on staffing, resourcing our various ministries, maintaining our buildings, and supporting our Mission Partners – monitored by the Parochial Church Council (PCC), the elected representatives of our church.
Ways you can give
We have a regular giving scheme (RGS) to help you give in a regular committed way. This enables us to plan our finances well.
We are grateful for one-off donations to the work of St Mary’s.
You may wish to remember the work of St Mary’s in your will.
If you are a UK taxpayer, we would encourage you to complete a Gift Aid declaration. This increases the value of your donation by up to one third because we claim back the tax you have paid.
We hold two gift days each year, one at Harvest time (September) and one at Christmas, at which we raise funds for causes outside of St Mary’s.
