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.

  • 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:
