We thank God for all his blessings to us. Money is always a difficult subject to discuss but the last 15 months have seen St Marys income fall dramatically with prices continuing to rise. Please consider making a one-off donation using a debit or credit card, using the link on this website: Choose “Contact us” from the menu at the top and then “Make a donation” and if you pay tax, please Gift Aid by filling in the short form on the same drop down menu. This can be either a one off or regular gift. Or if you already support us financially, please consider an increase to your regular giving.
Cash or cheques can be accepted too by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all you do whether financial, practical, or spiritual.

Are you interested in protecting the environment? You need no specific knowledge about environmental issues but all over 10 years old are welcome to join us - Zoom meetings at first . This group will initially focus on applying for eco church status and will probably then be investigating ways that both the church and individual members can lower their carbon footprint, and then decide upon the best way forward.

Giving a vaccine
One way to express our thankfulness for vaccines received, and show love for our neighbours, is to donate towards vaccines for others around the world. The Church of England is supporting the VaccinAid campaign led by UNICEF UK. Find more information on the Church of England page.
