Please support us; there are many ways to donate
Can you help St Mary's Parish Church? We are here to serve our community and to work hard for the benefit of all in our area. Coming out of lockdown we seek your help. Like all charities we need the support of the people we serve and ask that you may consider making a donation to the church? It can be done in many ways (see below) or you can simply scan the adjacent QR code with your smart phone (you'll need to download a QR reader app... there are many available and free). The instructions for payment are easy to follow, and you'll get a receipt of your transaction. If eligible, you can even gift aid the amount! Thank you for your continued support.
Donate your time
We are a Christian charity and it is important to resource our mission and ministry as well as meeting rising costs. We encourage members to join our planned giving scheme as a response to God's generous love for his world. Joining our planned giving scheme allows us to plan for the future, and if you pay income tax and want to gift aid your offering we can claim 'tax back'. For further information please contact Gillian Surtees on 0191 4886320 or email her at email@example.com. Similarly if your circumstances change regarding tax/gift aid or you’ve moved address let her know that too.
Donate a legacy
We would encourage all people to leave a legacy for the church of St Mary’s. Legacies should be made in a way which balances the interests and aspirations of donors on the one hand with the ever changing needs of the parish on the other. Legacies help ensure the future work of the church in years to come and many people have given them; for which we are very thankful. If you want to talk about this in greater detail please have a word with Barry, our Rector.
