You are always welcome in our churches without any pressure or expectation. However, we are always grateful for the support which keeps our work going.

This can mean giving financially, but giving your time and skills to the community are invaluable to all of us. 


We are your churches and your sacred spaces, and we want to make sure we stay open, cared for, and able to support you.


You can help by giving your time, whether it's praying for others, offering a warm welcome, fundraising, or supporting our activities.

Just contact the relevant person at each church or group.


Do you have skills or ideas that you are looking to offer to your community? We welcome all ideas, we may not have the capacity for everything, but ask and we will consider it seriously.

Just contact the clergy or the relevant group.


We encourage you to create a standing order if possible. Regular donations help us to have a better estimate of our income and ensure we can keep our activities running.

Use the details below to set up your standing order with online banking.
