With the present lockdown the parish income has been greatly reduced, because parishioners are unable to make their usual offerings in the collection. 
In the light of this I should be most grateful if parishioners would consider setting up a Standing Order to the parish. 
If you feel you would like to do this, please email me and I shall forward you the parish account details. 
Many thanks for your generosity.  Canon Adrian

100 CLUB

During the current lockdown we cannot run our normal monthly 100 club draw.
Once the lockdown is lifted, and we can return to normal life, we will ensure all the draws that have been missed are played.
If you are due to pay your 100 club weekly membership; please wait until the lockdown situation is lifted before sending your money into church.
