We ask for your help; as little or as much as you can. You will always be welcome if you can't. There is no obligation to give money in exchange for coming to church.


It costs approximately £4,000 per week to run St Mary's Church.  Funding is not available from any other source so we are entirely dependent on donations. We welcome financial support, large or small, regular or occasional to help with:

  • providing the care, fellowship, community groups, and worship

  • paying for clergy stipends, pensions and housing

  • maintaining, heating and lighting the buildings in good condition 

  • maintaining the organ and other music equipment

  • maintaining all the equipment in church and Church House

Ways of giving:

  • Online by clicking the blue donate button at the top of this page.  We use Virgin Money Giving (VMG) as it is a non-profit organisation.  There are small transaction fees but VMG processes the Gift Aid for us which is a huge help.  You do not need to create a VMG account to give this way, just  untick the box when it asks if you would like to create an account to give faster next time.
