During the pandemic, many individuals, families and business have been hit financially; this also includes our parish. As we can no longer have an Offertery during Mass, you can support the parish (as well as other diocesan funds) online by clicking the Online Offertory button.

Similarly, you can set up a Standing Order so that money will be donated to the parish each month. If you pay tax, you can Gift Aid every donation, meaning we receive an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, at no extra cost to you. To register for Gift Aid, or to set up a Standing Order, click the button below.

We truly appreciate any donation and understand these are difficult times for everyone
