YOUR PARISH NEEDS YOU
Financially, the life of the Parish depends entirely on the generosity of our parishioners through their weekly offertory donations. These donations meet the Parish’s ordinary outgoings. We rely on hall lettings and contributions to the Building Fund to set aside funds to pay for major repairs and plan for future developments to make the Parish more effective in its work.
We invite you to give according to your means and the needs of the Parish. Please give what you can consistently and according to your commitments.
Our preferred way for you to give is by bank or building society standing order. If you pay Income or Capital Gains tax, the Parish can benefit from a repayment of the tax you have paid on your donations, giving an additional quarter of what you give to the Parish at no additional cost to you.
Parish Finance Committee
This exists to advise the parish priest and to assist him in the administration of the finances and assets of the parish. In practice, the Committee oversees all the financial aspects of parish life and ensures that all income and expenditure is accounted for and that parish resources are wisely used.
The Finance Committee is also responsible for overseeing the preparation of the Parish’s annual accounts and for producing a summary of income and outgoings, which is presented to the Parish at the Parish Annual General Meeting. You can request a summary of the Parish’s financial accounts by contacting the Parish Office.
