CHURCH GIVING AND THE PARISH FINANCES
Owing to the Covid protocols, the Sunday 10am Service attendance has been slow to recover despite we being permitted to have 30 people at worship. As a result the collections have been reduced and the parish finances suffering. Can I encourage our parishioners to contribute on a regular basis by using the banking details below. Apart from the Op Shop all of our fund -raising efforts have been suspended, so the need is considerable. Noel
